The College campus in Ingelside provides students with peaceful surroundings to support their leaning and development.
Ample green space and sporting fields, in addition to fresh air away from main roads, provides students with an opportunity to be active during recess and lunch to support a healthy mind and body. This activity can also help students focus during class time.
The campus includes soccer fields, outdoor basketball courts, plus play equipment and sand pits for the younger primary students.

The College provides a bilingual library filled with a wide range of English and Armenian books. Students can access the library during lunchtime and study periods. Infants and Primary students participate in weekly library lessons and are required to have a library bag in order to borrow books.
The library holds an annual Book Fair, where children are able to purchase a wide variety of the highest quality literature and learning materials.
Galstaun College is easily accessible with a number of buses servicing the North Shore and Western Sydney region.
When new students first start to travel by bus, they are assigned a Bus Buddy i.e. an older student who gets on and off the bus at the same stop as the new student and can assist them in their travels.
Each bus has assigned Bus Prefects, who work with the Student Representative Council (SRC) on issues of student welfare relating to buses. Every afternoon, teachers are assigned to Bus Duty and they ensure that students board safely and that the bus has its full complement of students before it leaves the College.
For a full list of school buses that service Galstaun College, please contact the office on (02) 9998 3200.
