Glenbrook School

Glenbrook School has a proud and long history of serving families in the Franklin district. The school is bound strongly to our rural community and we have a family based perspective within the learning culture of the school. Students are friendly and engaged. They enjoy school and learning.

At Glenbrook we believe in developing the whole child. We have good standards of achievement in Reading, Writing and Mathematics and also provide a wide range of experiences across the curriculum learning areas to support and motivate students learning potential.

Our school enjoys building confidence and self-esteem in our students and we utilize the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) initiative to support good social and behavioural interactions at all levels of the school. We develop the key competencies through in a number of ways, including the ‘Habits of Mind’ concepts.

Essentially we believe that our fundamental responsibility as a learning community is to develop well connected students, who are proud of their school, their connections to our rural life style and values. We also work towards preparing students for their future in the world.
Our vision statement encapsulates this, ‘Realising Potential!’ (continue reading our School Charter)

Glenbrook School Songs

 Check out our cool Glenbrook songs.

PB4L forms the basis of our school behaviour management programme.  PB4L is a MOE initiative.  Click on the PB4L link on our website to find out more.  We have remade a Glenbrook version of an American song we found on Youtube.  The words in our version reflect our important concepts about PB4L.  Our children created the song and music video with the help of our teachers.  See what you think ...
