Students have a ‘homeroom’ teacher who delivers most of the class lessons (Maths, Language, Unit of Inquiry).

In addition students have regular Mandarin lessons, two PE, and two Music lessons per week. These lessons are taken by specialist teachers. Students also visit the Library and have lessons with the Information and Digital Literacy teacher as part of their Unit of Inquiry. The library is open before and after school to allow regular borrowing and browsing of books.

ICT is used as a tool for learning and teaching, where appropriate, in all curriculum areas. A variety of digital devices are available in all classes.

Lunch and Snacks

Students bring their own snack and lunch to school.

There is no canteen or shop to buy food at Glenealy School. There are no facilities for heating or preparation of students’ meals. Lunch and snack is eaten in the classrooms for Y1-Y3 students and for Y4-Y6 in the playground unless it is raining.

Glenealy School promotes ‘healthy’ eating as part of a balanced lifestyle. We would also prefer students minimise waste by using reusable containers.


Glenealy school students proudly wear their uniform. This is a school-wide expectation.

It is always pleasing to see the students so well presented in their uniform as it fosters an ethos of high standards in our school community.
