Welcome To Galstaun College

Welcome To Galstaun College

Hamazkaine Arshak and Sophie Galstaun College is a co-educational, non-selective school for students from Reception to Year 12.

Galstaun College places a strong emphasis on academic achievement where our dedicated teachers ensure the delivery of quality education in a disciplined learning environment. Students are engaged and challenged to become critical and creative thinkers and are provided with every opportunity to thrive academically, socially and personally.

Galstaun College is devoted to ensuring that each child is empowered with the confidence and skills to succeed and achieve their personal best in a safe, nurturing and dynamic learning environment.

Through the creation and development of a culture of care and collaboration, students learn key core ideals such as empathy, understanding and respect. Our small classes, pastoral care and mentoring program ensure that every student is given individual care and attention. Our emphasis on Christian values and our commitment to our students help establish an environment of responsibility, generosity and compassion.

Students are encouraged to contribute to the life of the college by participating in a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities where students can develop their talents and pursue their interests and passions. Opportunities are provided for students to participate, compete and excel in a wide range of activities aimed at promoting teamwork, leadership and school pride.

The college fosters and preserves the Armenian traditions that cultivate the Armenian language and culture. Students from Reception to Year 12 are engaged in the College Armenian Studies Program where they take an active role in demonstrating pride in their identity. Our accelerated Armenian program and biennial pilgrimage to Armenia help develop and reinforce a deep and unique appreciation of their cultural heritage.

Within Galstaun College, there is a strong sense of community as teachers, parents and community organisations work together to support and care for our students. I invite you to become a part of this dedicated and highly supportive community and look forward to introducing all that Galstaun College has to offer.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Edward Demirdjian
Galstaun College Principal
