Student Learning

 Gunbower Primary School is proud of its achievements as demonstrated in our student performance data. Our measurable data from a range of assessments is similar to or higher than other schools on adjusted school performance. The school comparison measures show we are excelling, with performance well above the predicted range for our students.

Student attendance is better than the Victorian median with continued improvement shown on the 3 year trend data.

The Student Attitudes to School survey measures students' sense of belonging to, and enjoyment of, their school. Our students like our school and continue to contribute strongly to the culture and learning environment .

Our 2010 results indicate that our students are motivated to learn and feel connected and safe at school. Gunbower Primary School has worked diligently to maintain such high levels of student engagement and connectedness, so the continuing upward trend is most pleasing. These scores are a credit to teachers' responsiveness and adaptability.
