Welcome to Goollelal Primary

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all parents and families who will be associated with Goollelal Primary School in 2017. Our school motto is “Sharing, Caring and Learning,” and this reinforces our belief in the importance of nurturing every child to fulfil their potential, socially, emotionally and academically.

Our dedicated teachers and support staff are committed to providing a world class education and Goollelal Primary School students consistently perform at or above the average in national assessments. The children in our care are offered a modern, contemporary education with access to the latest technologies and learning resources.

Goollelal Primary School is at the heart of a vibrant community. We work closely with the school community and value parents as partners in educating the students in our care. As an Independent Public School (IPS), the school operates under a School Board with parent, staff and community members. We also welcome parent involvement through our active P&C and through numerous school community events throughout the year.

I welcome you to our school community and look forward to meeting you soon.

A message from Trevor Hinchliffe:

To the Goollelal Community,

It is with some sadness that I announce that 2016 will be my last year on staff at Goollelal Primary School. I will be taking up a Deputy Principal position at Sorrento Primary School next year.

Over the past eight years, I have been fortunate enough to work with many children and be a part of their journey as they have transformed from bright-eyed, eager primary school faces into students ready to meet the challenges of high school. The relationships I have had with so many families – particularly those of whom I have taught multiple siblings – will stay with me as a lasting memory of teaching at this wonderful school.

Having the opportunity to work alongside such a skilled, dedicated and fun-loving staff has also been an honour. We probably don’t blow our trumpet enough here at Goollelal, but it will not surprise you to know that we have an amazing, diversely talented group of teachers who get the absolute best out their students, nor that our highly prized education assistants are held up as a model of success across the Education Department.

Having the opportunity to work alongside Kerry for the last six months has been amazing. Her commitment to successfully developing a community-first approach ethos across the school has allowed me to learn from the best, and is the ethos I will continue to base my career as an administrator on.

I love the community feel that Goollelal Primary brings, and can think of no better school for my own children to learn the values of Sharing, Caring and Learning. So while I am excited to be continuing a new chapter in my career at Sorrento, I am also excited that I still get to remain an active member of the Goollelal family in the capacity as a proud parent.

Kind regards,
Trevor Hinchliffe

Denise SavageMore big changes for Goollelal. As blowing the trumpet of Goollelal - I'll happily do that anytime! It really is one of the best schools for children to be part of - across the country! We could not have wished for a better school for our kids to be part of while in Perth. Enjoy the move career wise Trevor, and enjoy even more, being a proud Goollelal parent. As an ex one, we carry lots of good things with us.
