A message from our Principal

Welcome to Greenacres School. I am very proud to be the Principal of such a positive, caring and exciting place for students to learn and grow. Our staff are a highly committed, hardworking and professional group who provide an engaging curriculum based on our school vision to ‘encourage, challenge, inspire and learn!’

At Greenacres School we work in partnership with our community to provide the best possible learning and teaching environments for our students. We encourage all our students to become creative, independent and collaborative learners. We also focus on providing an inclusive environment where all students’ needs are being met socially, emotionally, culturally and academically. Our ‘Encourage Tree’ underpins our focus on a positive school culture and promotes a range of values that guide how we learn and behave at Greenacres.

Greenacres School is a community based school set in picturesque grounds with plenty of room for our students to grow. Our roll size means we are small enough that everyone knows your name and big enough to be able to provide a wide range of opportunities for our students.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisons you will ever make. If you are starting to plan for your child’s transition to school please don’t hesitate in making a time to meet with me or our office manager Sharon Dunstan to have a look around. Also check out our enrolment page for more details.
