Staff

 

The staff at Gruyere Primary School are embracing the highly effective approach of team teaching. This gives us the advantages of drawing on each other's strengths and experience as well as providing a variety of teaching and learning strategies to cater for individual learning styles and needs.

 

This approach has proven to model to children respectful relationships between adults.

 

Our core curriculum is delivered in this manner by:

 

Michele Upton
