Welcome to Goollelal Primary

Strong family values and community connections underpin our school motto of sharing, caring and learning, so I welcome you warmly to the Goollelal Primary School community.

The children in our care are offered a modern, contemporary education with access to the latest technologies and all children are valued. With a wide variety of different learning opportunities we excel at providing something for everyone. We have a focus on teaching resilience and catering for the ‘whole child’ in all domains of social, emotional and academic performance.

We are excited about the future for the students at Goollelal and invite you to our school for a tour or chat about how we best may serve you and your family. We have a wonderfully active P&C and there are lots of opportunities to be involved. I 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.
