Messages from the Principal


DHHS has advised that the school can reopen from 10/8/20. Locker bays will be open from 9.30am onwards today for students to collect materials. Further information will be provided for students and parents who wish to travel from metropolitan areas to collect belongings.

Eligible students will be able to attend school for on-site supervision from Tuesday 11/8/20.

Please see full letter emailed to parents, carers and students earlier this morning for full details.

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this time and wish the affected member of our school community a speedy and safe recovery.


In line with the Department of Education directive, GSC reverted to remote and flexible learning from 5 August 2020 for at least 6 weeks.

During this time the school will deliver information sessions for students, parents and carers on how programs are being run and support services delivered.
