Welcome to Guru Gobind Singh Public School, Chas. We are immensely proud of our school, its traditions and its future directions. We can see our aspirations and objectives come alive in all of our classrooms through our dedicated teaching staff and the many activities that are available to our children. Our mission at GGPS,Chas is to graduate empowered students who are high achieving, socially and emotionally intelligent, globally aware and active citizens in the community. We do this by ensuring that all of our children have the best possible literacy and numeracy teaching programs. A key focus area for us is for our students to develop a love of reading as we know that this opens up the world of information to them. Our children also participate in our annual school concert where they have the opportunity to experience performing on a stage arena in front of a large audience.

There is strong alignment of the school’s purpose, goals and targets and continuous improvement which is shared. Student learning outcomes have correspondingly improved to be well above expected levels.

In addition, the school leadership has significant partnerships with other schools under the aegis of Guru Gobind Singh Educational Society undertaking focused improvement work. There has been a sustained and clear focus on building a stimulating learning environment so that every child is engaged in high quality learning. There has been a clear focus on whole-school professional learning, coaching, and building the teaching teams to ensure consistency of teaching and learning practice across the school.

There is a strong teacher-student relationship at every level and the genuine care and support for every student is evident. Students and parents report that the teaching and learning is engaging and motivating and students love coming to school.

We are also proud of the many programs that our children have access to which include the school leadership programs through the Student Council elections, after school sport activities, opportunities for group lessons.

A highlight of our school is the community involvement focus. We have connections with local sporting clubs as well as a vibrant parent focus. You will notice photos of activities from wide ranging fields on our website. Our school prides itself on the rich multicultural connections. This enables our children to have a wonderful appreciation of other cultures and makes GGPS,CHAS a vibrant place to be for our children, staff and parents.

Thus the school plays a vital role in moulding the character and future formation of each and every child in making them a better citizen of the nation. I hope each one of you will play an active role for making the bright future of our coming generation.
