Gascoyne Junction Remote Community School (5181)

School Overview


Welcome to our school.
Gascoyne Junction Remote Community School is situated in the Shire of the Upper Gascoyne some 174 kilometres away from the coastal town of Carnarvon.
The school caters for a small cohort of students, from kindergarten to Year 12, residing in the town proper, Woodgamia Community and local pastoralist stations.
We provide a safe and stimulating learning environment for all students and staff. We encourage discussion and open communication with parents, carers and community members to provide the best possible learning experience for our students.
Experienced, knowledgeable staff differentiates the curriculum to cater for individual needs within an engaging, rich learning environment. The school has a strong focus on numeracy and literacy as well as improving school attendance through the use of incentive based programs.
Respect is the key value we use to define appropriate student behaviour and understandings about learning, working and living together. Respect Cards are used to acknowledge positive behaviours by students and are an intricate part of supporting the Code of Conduct through meaningful, easy to understand goals and behaviours. This is a whole school initiative.
Our school provides students with the opportunity to investigate and learn by connecting with relevant and current programs from around Australia and around the world. All students have access to computer workstations, laptops and iPads to support their needs. Each class is supplied with the latest in touch screen, fully integrated monitors to help facilitate and coordinate learning.
We promote healthy lifestyle choices. All students participate in a daily fitness program targeting cardio-respiratory endurance, strength, flexibility, agility, game skills and teamwork. Providing the opportunity to engage in activities like archery, golf and cycling, also motivates students to attend school and complete other tasks.
