Safety To and From School

It is important that children come directly from home to school and return home by the shortest safe route using the underpasses where available. Visiting the Jeffries Street shop and Jeffries Street playground before and after school is discouraged.

School Assembly

This is a special time at Gowrie Primary School when the whole school comes together. Senior students conduct the assembly which may include singing reporting, merit awards announcements, presentations by one or m0re class groups, details of events, visitors and messages from the Principal and staff. Parents are welcome to attend school assemblies which are usually held on Tuesday at 10.30am.

School Counsellor

The school has a part-time school counsellor. Parents and carers are welcome to contact the counsellor for discussion and advice. Please call 6205 7822 to make and appointment.

  • Burrai - Colour white and totem rock wallaby
  • Dyara - Colour red and totem bower bird
  • Mirrir - Colour yellow and totem wild dog
