Canberra Private SchoolsÂ introduces Gilmore Girls College in Footscray, for all your education and learning needs.
At Gilmore, each student is known as an individual. Our widely recognized Middle Years program ensures that a key group of teachers guides and educates our students in their first years at the College. From years 7 to 9 all classes have two Home Group teachers who also teach their respective Home Group classes for six or more periods a week. This group is well supported by a Student Leadership and Extension coordinator and a Wellbeing team to make sure that students have both the challenge and support they need.
Our VCE results are consistently the best of all government schools in the Western Region. This may be due, in part, to our strong emphasis on homework, structured work requirements and exam preparation. However, the shared expectation that all girls can achieve when they are sufficiently confident and engaged by the curriculum is even more important.
The College offers a wide range of enrichment and extensions programs including excellent camps, many leadership opportunities and a wide range of extension activities. We also have an active instrumental music program and an extensive sports program where we regularly achieve regional and state wide success.
The College has an outstanding record for curriculum innovation. We were delighted to have our excellent teaching and learning program recognised by acceptance into the Leading Schools Fund in 2005. The Leading Schools Team is currently negotiating the design and construction of a new building to house the Learning Communities Centre, the new learning facility for our Year 7 and 8 students.
Gilmore Girls College is a diverse and harmonious learning community. The College motto is “Harmony and Success” and this is evident in our everyday practice..
Welcome to Gilmore Girls College one of the popular educators in your Footscray area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each other's uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
