Term Three

Welcome back to Term Three, we're looking forward to the many fabulous events including our annual trivia night, assemblies, masses, celebrations and of course learning. 

Today we sadly said goodbye to Greg Jin at his funeral service at St Joseph's Church in Port Melbourne. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tae Yoon (1F), Lea (Prep 2020) and mum, Seol. We commend the Galilee school community for their outstanding support during this difficult time.

Year 4 Sport

For the duration of Term 3, 4C need to wear their Sports Uniform on Tuesdays and 4G need to wear their Sports Uniform on Wednesdays. Sport will remain at 9am for all Year Fours.

Community Catch Up

Our next Community Catch up will be in Term 3, Week 2: Monday 22nd July from 8.35am - 9.30am.

On this day, we will have a coffee van where parents are welcome to get a coffee and then join us in the parent room to catch up and chat with other parents in our community. This is a fantastic opportunity for our community to come together and a chance for new parents to be welcomed into our community. 

Looking forward to seeing you there,

GOSH - TheirCare

We had an amazing Holiday Program in GOSH! Our children were wonderful Superheroes who were solving secret messages, competing Superhero's obstacle Ninja course, attending Bootcamp, were learning to fly, practiced in cooking healthy super food and of course watched great movie happy with popcorn.   

Term 3 started with plenty of bunnies attending from the first day- we keep on being as usual busy, dealing with cold weather by making "wintery" art & craft and by playing super active games outside.


We are incredibly happy to see all of our children back to GOSH refreshed and energized as well as their parents.


Don't forget that we open every day in the morning and afternoon , register and book now at
