Students resume school at 8:55am on Tuesday, April 14 (the first day of Term 2).  We wish all our families a very safe and enjoyable school vacation!


We trust all parents were able to arrange their 3Way Conferences Individual Learning Plans will be available on Compass by the end of Term, if you missed out please contact your child’s teacher. 


Remember to log in often to authorise absences and to keep up to date with activities, events and your child’s learning progress! All school families have been sent a letter with their unique log in credentials!  There are a number of parent modules available in Compass which we will be introducing over time.


School office hours are 8:30am – 4:30pm each school day.

 Our Mission Statement: To provide a supportive and engaging environment which enables students to develop the emotional, social, physical and academic skills to adapt and contribute positively to an ever changing world! 

At Great Ryrie Primary School we aim to help our students develop lively, inquiring minds, a love of learning and a willingness to apply effort to worthwhile tasks.

Our school ethos is based on our six common agreed values – Collaboration; Honesty & Integrity; Individuality; Learning; Positive Attitude; Respect & Responsibility.  We believe the key to student wellbeing lies in building strong relationships across the school, and our values form the basis of all our relationships.

We have a culturally diverse school community and we celebrate differences. We treat every child as an individual and aim to identify and meet the learning needs of each student.

Our ‘Theories of Action’ help define the school we are!
