Healthy Tracks

Conversation Caravan visited us on Wednesday 18th September.

We had lots of parents and students chat to the crew from Conversation Caravan about how our families get to school, what would make it easier for us to walk, ride or scoot to school, and how we would like to travel to school!

The City of Port Phillip is working with Galilee to develop an action plan to make it safer and easier to walk, scoot and ride a bike to school. The Healthy Tracks to School project is integral in encouraging young people and their families to:

-        Participate on active travel methods such as walking, riding and scooting;

-        Engage in community through shared travel experience;

-        Develop independence and responsibility through independent travel; and

-        Enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.

We had a smoothie bike with free smoothies and a coffee van with free coffees!

Just a reminder that the healthy tracks survey closes on Friday 20th September 2019.

The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete and your answers are completely anonymous. For further information please see the research collection statement and City of Port Phillip's privacy statement.

Galilee Parents Association (GPA) News

Galilee Parents Association AGM - Tuesday 19 November 2019 - 7:30pm

Put the date in your diaries for the AGM where we will recap the successes and learnings from 2019 and make plans for moving forward in 2020.


At the AGM this year the elected positions of president, vice president, secretary and treasurer will all be up for nomination and election.  These positions are renewed every 2-3 years to ensure we have a dynamic and inclusive committee.


Annalise, Jess, Emma and Maureen have thoroughly enjoyed these positions for the last 2-3 years but will not be renominating for them.  They will ensure people taking on these roles are well supported as they transition into these roles in 2020 and will remain on as general members into the future.


These main roles are a 2-3 year position. If anyone is interested in these positions or know of someone who might be please let us or Simon Millar know. 


Please read the role descriptions attached. Any questions please email the address below or see a committee member.


Art Show - a favourite on the school calendar - 24 October from 5-7pm

On Tuesday all the beautiful young dancers who attend class on Tuesday afternoons,  presented what they have learnt this term to their parents. 

They did an amazing job with both their Ballet and Jazz moves!
