Mr Frank Catalano, Principal
Thank you for making the time to visit our school website.
On behalf of the students, staff and School Council, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all children and parents who are beginning an association with Glen Waverley Primary School. I am extremely proud and honoured to be this wonderful school’s Principal and cherish the opportunity to assist in the development of our most precious resource – our children.
Glen Waverley Primary is proud to be a Member of the Council of International Schools which is recognition for schools around the world for their high professional standards. We are also extremely proud of our reputation for providing a comprehensive and challenging curriculum, academic excellence, valuable friendships and catering for each individual. Our purpose is to provide a safe, stimulating and supportive environment that develops all students to their full potential - academically, socially and emotionally – as we instil in children a lifelong love of learning.
Our strong academic focus is supported by a multitude of extra-curricular programs such as Physical Education, Visual Arts, English as an Additional Language (EAL), Music, Language (Mandarin) and Intervention and Extension programs.
It is our aim to help your child settle into our school community and build those skills, attitudes and values they will need to fully participate in the rich educational life of our school and beyond. The social and emotional wellbeing of our students is of vital importance and our programs are planned with this in mind. We work to develop confident and resilient students who are prepared to push themselves to achieve the best of their ability and to try something new.
I am proud to be the leader and a part of the highly motivated, professional and caring staff, providing programs that develop excellence, initiative, co-operation and independence as we prepare our children for their future.
Prospective parents and students are most welcome to visit our school throughout the year. I love this school and enjoy showing people around. Every day is open day at Glen Waverley Primary School.
School tours are available every Tuesday morning at 9:30 and other appointments can be made by contacting the school office on 9802 9938.
We would like you to quickly feel a part of our wonderful school and I look forward to meeting you personally.
