Principal Welcome

Dear Prospective and current Parents and Students

Daniel Breen

I would like to extend a warm welcome to families looking for an outstanding public education here in Canberra. Gold Creek School, as well as being a part of the high quality ACT Education system, is one of nine public schools in the ACT that deliver an International Baccalaureate (IB) education to its students. As we are a school that caters to students from preschool to year 10, we offer both the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP).

Our qualified teachers and leaders are deeply committed to the principles of the IB, with its focus on academic excellence, differentiated instruction, rich co-curricular experiences and active global citizenship. Students have opportunities to develop and challenge themselves and one another across a broad spectrum of interests in a caring and mutually supportive environment.

We strive to develop global citizens and our diverse student body representing more than 30 nations—ages 4 to 16—provides students and teachers the opportunity to learn from one another, share unique perspectives, foster mutual respect and cultivate the core values of an IB education.

I understand the importance that families place upon a quality education in a safe and welcoming environment. Gold Creek School will provide you with that and more.
