Welcome to Glen Dhu Primary
Glen Dhu Primary School in Launceston is a Kindergarten to Grade 6 school of approximately 350 students situated close to the centre of town. Glen Dhu has a long and proud history since there has been a school on this site since 1895. The original school building now houses our library, a classroom and learning support.
Since 2007, very extensive redevelopments have taken place in our classroom and administrative areas, giving us facilities well suited to 21st century learning. Our classrooms have flexible spaces and easy access to the outdoors. Each one is fitted with an interactive whiteboard and ICT plays a central role in the teaching and learning process. Our grounds are large and are graced by a significant number of majestic European trees which help to provide natural shade.
Our school has an enviable reputation in the community. We have a simple set of rules: Be Safe, Be Fair, Be Your Best and Care which underpin our supportive, safe environment. We believe that building quality relationships among all members of our school community leads to better outcomes for all. We aim to develop resilient, self-directed learners who have the knowledge, skills and attitude to be their best. We hold high expectations of our students in regards to their learning, behaviour and personal presentation. These are reflected in the calm, purposeful atmosphere which characterises our school.
