GSG Mission

The mission of GSG is to provide the young people of the Great Southern region and beyond with a world class school, incorporating a liberal education, the Christian faith and a maritime heritage.

Great Southern Grammar is committed to providing students with a well-rounded education that imparts valuable life skills and prepares young people to participate and achieve in community and society. We are committed to:

  • Providing students with a broad and balanced education by encouraging participation in as many learning areas as possible;
  • Assisting students to recognise and value their gifts and talents and developing these in appropriate ways;
  • Encouraging students, through their exposure to Christian teachings, to explore issues of faith, spirituality and values;
  • Enabling students to develop and appreciate the important place that integrity, respect, tolerance and compassion have within the context of a modern society.

GSG Objectives

  • To be an effective educational community that actively involves students, staff, parents and friends and develops active links with the wider community within which the school operates.
  • To provide a diversity of learning programmes suited to the developmental stages and learning needs of students.
  • To acknowledge in all educational programmes the central role of Christian faith as the fundamental human commitment that gives shape to all life.
  • To facilitate the highest levels of educational achievement for each student, according to individual ability.
  • To develop an educational environment that in organisational structure, pastoral care and teaching programmes is authentically Christian.
  • To equip students with an appreciation of their own worth and the values of others. 
  • To instil in students the capacity and confidence to make decisions concerning all aspects of life, including their chosen vocation, and to help students to deal creatively with economic and social matters.
  • To provide all employees of the school with a satisfying and rewarding working environment.
