The Maiden Gully Primary School learning community through the eyes of many, from Foundation to Year 6, both parents and staff, all sharing the same vision.
This video was planned, interviewed and filmed by our graduating 2017 Year Six students. With hours of footage recorded, we hope you enjoy this short, 7 minute snapshot.
At Maiden Gully Primary we believe wellbeing and relationships underpin the success and achievements of our students. We pursue excellence, which is encourages high student attendance and punctuality. Our school provides opportunities to inspire student engagement in learning and actively encourage students to look forward to tomorrow. Our philosophy towards student success and achievement is reinforced through our School Values of Responsibility, Respect, Community and Teamwork.
Maiden Gully Primary is located 7 kilometres west of the City of Greater Bendigo in a delightful rural fringe environment. Maiden Gully is an identifiable community within a ‘growth corridor’ supported by the Maiden Gully Progress Association. The school has an enrolment of 494 students and 38 staff (2 Principal Class, 29 Teachers & 7 Education Support staff). At Maiden Gully Primary we are proud of the strong community atmosphere that forms the foundation of our school and active, wider community.
We are proud of our student learning data which shows that our school is above the State average in all learning areas. Our dedicated team drives innovation and excellence across all areas in our school and continually strive for improvement in teaching and learning.
For 2016, our Annual Implementation Plan goals focus on teaching and learning in literacy, numeracy and deep learning. This will be supported by a peer coaching model for teachers and access to best practice professional development to embed an explicit teaching model, guided reading, spelling, oral language and writing. These refined practices will continue to drive the school's improvement in literacy and numeracy.
At Maiden Gully Primary, we are committed to 21st Century Learning Design that recognises that learning is enabled through digital technologies. A mobile technology educational approach has been embedded with all students in Years Three to Six, endeavouring to deliver 24/7 educational opportunities for our students with increasing access to digital content and collaboration. Digital teaching and learning opportunities begin in Foundation to Year 2 classroom and are an important step in preparing students to develop 21st Century learning capabilities. Links with our Sister School, Xingwan in China continues to connect our children to the world as we host students from Suzhou and each year we select student delegates to visit our Sister School in China.
We take pride in fostering the growth of the whole child; academically, physically, socially and emotionally. We stress the importance of kindness and the ability to care for self and others, working together to benefit and contribute the school and wider community. Maiden Gully Primary is a wonderful place to learn, grow and succeed.
