We aim to work in partnership with parents, to foster a supportive and encouraging school environment that enhances emotional wellbeing and inspires students to make the most of their God-given potential. We engage and captivate young minds, seeking to deeply and positively transform every child. Through dynamic, stimulating and innovative programs that foster thinking skills, creativity and collaboration, our caring staff and well-resourced learning spaces assist students to experience "Life in all its fullness", the words of our motto. Our school is open to those who seek a Christ-centred education for their child within an environment of safety, excellence and enjoyment. You’re invited to visit our campus, ask questions, meet our staff and experience why we all love our school.
Now that’s Good News!
In order to meet the learning needs of today’s students, curriculum delivery must be flexible and occur within spaces that adjust to academic, physical, social and emotional requirements. Across Prep to Year 6, our students enjoy learning environments that respond to their individuality and engage them beyond the ‘traditional classroom’. Our Resource Centre is a central hub of the school and is used by staff, students and parents for research, project development, collaboration, reflection and enjoyment within its various activity zones.
Your child is important to us. That’s why our staff are passionate about what they do and how they meet the individual needs of students through consistent, contemporary teaching and learning that supports innovation, collaboration and creativity. Every child’s potential is maximized through small group delivery of English and Maths, as well as opportunities for more focussed learning in their areas of need and interest.
Our school offers a range of extension activities commencing in Year 1. Then from Year 3, students demonstrating appropriate strengths and abilities may be invited to join the Gifted and Talented program under the guidance of a specially trained Gifted Education teacher. These students undertake work that is well above that of their peer level and enjoy the greater challenges on offer.
Learning Enrichment & Special Needs:
Good News has a strong reputation for supporting students with learning difficulties and special needs. Our staff build each child’s self-esteem while providing appropriate assistance through individualised or small group support.
Our Digital Learning Facilitator works collaboratively with teachers and students to ensure technologies are effectively integrated into the curriculum. Students learn how to appropriately and ethically use devices in exciting, innovative and purposeful ways to achieve outcomes not possible through other means.
Through formal and informal opportunities, music forms an integral part of our school life. Our specialist music teacher develops students’ musicology, composition and performance skills.
LOTE - Mandarin
Learning a language other than English improves students’ cognitive skills, enhances understanding of English features and provides additional opportunities to engage in our global society. Good News students learn Mandarin from Year 3, participating in reading, writing, speaking and cultural awareness.
