GOLDEN GROVE LUTHERAN PRIMARY SCHOOL
Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School is a Christian school and has been educating and inspiring South Australian students since it opened its doors in 1988.
Part of the national system of Lutheran schools, we offer a strong academic program supported by strong Christian teachings and values.
Principal, Dr Shane Paterson, who has been in education for over 30 years, is proud to lead the school which offers excellent primary school education from Foundation to Year 6.
Under the school values of Believe, Collaborate, Achieve, Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School promotes a sense that it is neither too small nor too big. It is a school where everyone in the community matters and strong relationships are built.
Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School is also a member of Connected Schools which offer a seamless K-12 education. To this end, we work with Salisbury Lutheran Kindergarten, St Paul Lutheran School, Blair Athol, Good Shepherd Lutheran School, Para Vista and Endeavour College, Mawson Lakes.
The Connected Schools’ vision is to be a future-focused, vibrant community of schools that work together in partnership knowing that this helps each school accomplish more than it could imagine or achieve individually.
A Holistic Lutheran School Approach
As a school of the Lutheran church, our Christian faith is foundational in guiding and directing our school community. While respecting and acknowledging the diversity in spirituality and beliefs in our community, Christian values and beliefs and our faith in Jesus Christ inform and underpin all that we do.
At Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School, students are encouraged to wonder, explore and discover through a process of inquiry education, as well as engage in learning tasks that are significant, deep and rich.
The school focuses on literacy and numeracy, ensuring students have a good understanding and application of these skills so they can be actively involved in their learning. Early intervention in these core areas is provided through the learning support program.
All teaching and learning, while responding to the Australian Curriculum, is under the framework of the International Baccalaureate Organisation, Primary Years Programme. The students use flexible learning spaces to support their learning and work collaboratively with each other in their learning tasks.
Celebrating and embracing diversity within the school is essential for students to recognise their place within a local, national and global world.
It is our aim for students to possess the skills to work and collaborate with a wide range of peers by being communicators, thinkers, open-minded, reflective and respectful; through these and other skills, they can make a difference in their world.
Based in Wynn Vale, Adelaide, we work in partnership and in collaboration with parents to champion the success of every child.
