A message from Rachael Dewhurst
Welcome to Bostock House
We are Geelong Grammar School’s ‘child-sized’ primary campus located in the heart of Newtown. When you enter Bostock House, you are welcomed into a warm, caring and big-hearted community of students, parents and educators, where the values of inclusion and belonging are deeply treasured.
At Bostock House we get to know our students very well, understanding deeply their individual needs, gifts and talents. Being a relatively small campus, this extends beyond our dedicated classroom teachers and specialist educators to all Bostock staff looking out for the safety, happiness and overall well-being of all students.
Our learning communities are designed so that every students is challenged, encouraged and supported along their own individual learning path. We know that children learn and develop in stages. Our caring educators are experienced using differentiated teaching strategies to challenge, encourage, inspire and strengthen learning in every student, every day.
The Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate provides the framework for our curriculum from ELC to Year 4. Through this framework students are guided to understand the world around them, think critically and creatively and become active citizens in the community.
In combination with a comprehensive specialist programme and our three strategic pillars, Adventure Education, Positive Education and Creative Education, we provide a truly rich, diverse and inspiring education that lays a firm foundation for enabling, confident, courageous, curious and compassionate individuals.
We feel privileged to care for the well-being and education of our Bostock House families.
