Our vision statement says it all:
We are a learning community committed to the development of resilient, independent and respectful girls who aim for excellence in all that they do. Our vision is to create a nurturing, collaborative and inclusive environment that prepares our girls to be responsible global citizens with the skills to succeed in the 21st Century.
This school prioritises the values of respect and responsibility as we believe that students and staff work best in an ordered and secure environment. The school’s student welfare policy and discipline procedures support staff as they help students make better decisions about their behaviour, treat others with respect to achieve quality work and quality relationships. We also have strong policies in uniform, attendance, mobile phones, anti-bullying, recognition of achievement, assessment and reporting.
This is a happy and safe school. Students learn best in an environment where they feel safe. Our welfare system is based on the development of the whole student. Our Head Teacher Welfare, Year Advisers, School Counsellor and Year 10 Peer Support leaders ensures that each girl feels at home and happy.
This school is a very harmonious environment, which is tolerant of difference and where the girls genuinely care for each other. We are inclusive of all students from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds.
Penshurst Girls Campus provides academic and co-curricular programs to challenge all students to realise their full potential. Academic and co-curricular programs aim to enrich all students. However, some students will participate in extension programs and others may accelerate. Thus the gifts and talents of each student are nurtured and developed. GRC Penshurst Girls Campus is committed to developing and resourcing programs for the gifted and talented and to providing within its structures opportunities for such programs to operate.
Our Curriculum pattern has been specifically designed for a middle school learning environment to engage all students. Mandatory subjects in English, Mathematics, Science, Australian History and Geography; Personal Development, Health and Physical Education are enriched with quality teaching, integrated and embedded technology and an ever present focus on literacy and numeracy skills. The teaching and learning programs are linked to real world experiences and have been developed to cater for the specific learning styles and interests of girls.
GRC Penshurst Girls Campus is part of a cleverly constructed college, which has been designed to cater both for senor HSC studies and to allow for specialist teaching of students in the middle years- Go to our website for a virtual tour of the school.
