Principal's message

On behalf of the students, staff and community I welcome you to our school. It is such a privilege and honour to be a part of this strong and vibrant community and Principal of this amazing school. 

Our vision of “Every Gymea Bay Public School student is known, valued and cared for, while being challenged to flourish through our nurturing community.” is encapsulated each day in our pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning whilst nurturing the social and emotional needs of students to support them to become confident, resilient individuals.

Gymea Bay Public School has a dedicated staff who strive for high standards in teaching and learning by continually improving their own professional knowledge and expertise to ensure students are provided with a high quality education. Our passion for excellence is a driving force each and every day. We focus on providing a school that is collaborative, inclusive and maintaining whole school approaches to engage and improve student learning. Aside from exceptional teaching practice and academic results, we provide our students with a plethora of extra curricular opportunities including dance, public speaking, debating, chess, band, strings, sport and much more.

Our school is located on the traditional lands of the Dharawal speaking people and we have a strong commitment towards all aspects of Aboriginal Education. We are proud to have an Aboriginal Education Officer that supports all students and teachers to strengthen Aboriginal education and culture across our school through Aboriginal art, traditional games, Dreaming Stories, Aboriginal History, Music, Dance and more. In 2023, we established a ‘Cultural Hub’ which is a culturally safe space for our Aboriginal Community across the Sutherland Shire to come together for cultural events, informal discussions and meetings.

Great schools are a shared responsibility and we are fortunate at Gymea Bay Public School to have a dynamic and vibrant school where there is strong community, parent and family involvement. I encourage parents and carers to be involved in the life of the school. We have a highly motivated and active P&C Association whose contributions benefit our students. Becoming active in the school’s P&C committee is an excellent way to increase involvement and to work as a team to support and encourage children’s learning and development. Furthermore, our involvement in the Sutherland Network extends our partnership in the community, providing for seamless and smoother transitions for our students.

Your child’s education is paramount to achieving the success we pursue. Together we work in partnership to deliver a quality education to each and every student at Gymea Bay Public School to ensure that all students are engaged, challenged and confident in their ability to learn. We know that when we achieve this our students will be well-prepared for the exciting future that lies ahead for them.

I invite prospective parents and students to visit our school and look forward to working closely with you.

Thank you.
