Welcome to Garden Avenue Junior Public School!
We are a vibrant and caring school community for students in Kindergarten through Grade Six. At Garden, we value each and every student. As a staff, we strive to provide the best experience for out students as well as a caring, safe, nurturing, positive and respectful learning environment.
Even though we are a smaller school, we have a wide variety of extra-curricular activities for our students to participate in, such as: Cross Country running; Track and Field; Floor Hockey; Book Club; Ukulele Club; Knitting Club; Lego Club; Science Fair Club; and Newspaper Club. We recognize the importance of building connections outside the classroom, and this is reflected in our commitment to extra activities during lunch, recesses, and before/after school.
We also provide opportunities for our students to engage in mindfulness and self-reflection, such as during our daily Mindful Activity, and our weekly Peaceful Recess Project in the Library, because we believe in nurturing the health and well-being of our students at school.
Please follow us on twitter @GardenAvePS for exciting news and events.
