Goderich Public School is the true definition of a community school in the prettiest town located on the shores of Lake Huron. We have an active school council and a community that supports us without hesitation. Our School Council has dedicated great time and effort to raise funds so that our students are provided with a wide variety of extended technological and academic opportunities, as well as our annual Holiday Dinner and field trips.
At GPS we pride ourselves in providing students with diverse learning experiences that address their academic, social and emotional needs. This year, we will welcome approximately 485 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. We believe that learning is a responsibility shared by the school, students, home and the greater community. Our focus remains squarely on our students, and working towards the key priorities outlined in Avon Maitland District School Board Strategic Plan, related to the pillars – I Am Well, I Am Prepared, and I Am Engaged. We will support the development of positive character attributes, support student mental health and wellbeing, and also support the academic program in our school to ensure all students are working to their full potential.
Staff and students work together at GPS to extend student learning beyond the classroom. Many opportunities exist for student leadership and engagement, whether it be supporting our younger students, intramural sports and activities, leadership team, and clubs and groups. Our caring staff are dedicated to providing opportunities for growth and learning in many different areas.
