Welcome to Gawler & District College B–12
Welcome to our vibrant and welcoming learning community that is Gawler and District College B-12. I am privileged to be leading the school as Principal and invite you to explore our website and discover what makes Gawler and District College such a special place.
Gawler and District College was created in 2013 through the amalgamation of Gawler High School, Evanston Primary School and Evanston Preschool. Despite new beginnings the school is steeped in rich history dating back to 1907 where the school was originally named the Gawler School of Mines and was located in Gawler East. Whilst we respect and draw on the past, our focus is on providing learning opportunities for all students that reflect the needs of all 21st Century learners.
Gawler and District College B-12 is a supportive, inclusive and enthusiastic community of independent thinkers. We are a learning community which encourages staff, students and parents to involve themselves fully in all aspects of school life with a focus on our core school values of Respect, Generosity and Excellence. Our students are welcoming, engaged and curious, and our staff passionate and committed to every students' needs.
Our passionate teachers, leaders and support staff offer high quality education and a rich diversity of programs for our students ensuring the best possible outcomes for all of our students. Our teaching staff devote many hours and boundless energy to continually improve their curriculum delivery as well as a range of broad extra-curricular programs. We are lucky to have a staffing mix of highly experienced and early career teachers. They are supported by an equally committed and skilled team of paraprofessional staff who focus on delivering a high quality service to students, staff and families as well as 21st Century work practices.
Our students demonstrate leadership of and in their learning with a strong emphasis on Student Voice across the College. Importantly, our students care for and about one another, understanding that we learn best when we collaborate with each other, and that achievement is most rewarding when it is shared.
Gawler and District College is a unique and special place; on behalf of our staff and students, I warmly welcome you to our school.
