FFSA World Football & Netball SA Specialist Programs

Gleeson College FFSA World Football and Netball SA Specialist Programs were formed to allow students with a passion for the games of World Football and Netball, to train and develop under the skilled guidance of elite coaches. The World Football program that Gleeson College offers is fully accredited by the Football Federation of South Australia (FFSA), while our Netball program is fully accredited by Netball SA.

The program aims to provide students the opportunity to develop their sporting potential towards the 'elite' level, while maintaining their performance in academic studies.

Student Pastoral Care

Gleeson College offers Personal Development, Youth Ministry, Peer Mediation, Social Justice and Religious Education Programs, which embrace personal responsibility and Gleeson's motto 'With One Heart'.

Cultural Immersion Trips to the Northern Territory and Iga Warta in the Flinders Ranges (SA) allow for our students to learn about Indigenous culture and traditions first hand.

Vocational Learning Pathways

Gleeson College is committed to providing future pathways for all students. We have a highly successful Vocational Learning Program, providing school-based Traineeships and Certificate Diplomas in over 40 industry areas.

Diverse Extra-Curricular Program

Gleeson College offers opportunities in performing arts, athletics, swimming, team sports, dance, music, robotics and HPV (Pedal Prix). A strong presence in SSSSA Knockout sport has seen our College win a number of State and National Titles in both, World Football (Soccer), Indoor Soccer, Hockey, AFL Football and Netball.

Our Ecological Footprint

Gleeson College, Golden Grove, recognises the ever-increasing importance of improving its ecological footprint. As a community, in conjunction with local businesses, an Urban Forest Development was implemented in 2008. Students have since planted over 500 trees, which will offset the College’s carbon dioxide emissions, recover landscape and nurture biodiversity.

Around Gleeson College we have also had over 800 native plants planted by State Flora. We have also adopted various other water and electricity initiatives, including recycling boxes in classrooms and the option of electronic issues of the College newsletter, as the school works toward being carbon neutral.
