What's Going On


Staff of 2017


Staff joined in during the book character parade, as part of our Book Week


We, the staff of Grafton Public School believe that the fundamental purpose of education is to prepare children for life. To achieve this purpose, we provide a balanced and varied school curriculum that has been developed to meet the academic, personal, social and cultural needs of the student. In our teaching we strive to help each student to achieve to the best of his/her potential, to master basic skills and to improve individual performance.

We are committed to instilling respect for learning and an attitude that learning will be a life-long pursuit. We seek to progressively instil in students an acceptance of personal responsibility for themselves and their own learning. We are committed to providing a safe, attractive learning environment for all. We are committed to the development of attitudes and behaviours that demonstrate respect, tolerance and thoughtfulness.

Our guiding principle is the 4 Cs rule – care, courtesy, consideration, and co-operation.
