vic.edu.au/ Location Profile Golden Square Primary School (GSPS) 5531 was established on Laurel St in 1873 in response to a burgeoning local population and economy associated with the boom of the goldfields and the work and wealth they generated.
In 1956 Maple Street Primary School was established, a brisk walk just across the highway as an annex of GSPS, which then graduated to become its own school in the 1970s. The next significant phase began in 2009 when a merger of the two schools was initiated. This being in response to changing demographics and falling enrolments.
The merger of the two schools offered an opportunity via a School Regeneration Project to build a new, contemporary design school for the Golden Square community. From 2010 to 2012, the school operated as a single school on two campuses, one at Laurel St and the other at Maple St. At the beginning of 2013, students and staff from the Maple St campus were relocated onto the Laurel St campus under the banner of Working As One - at the same effectively providing a greenfield site for the construction of the new Golden Square Primary School on the Maple St campus.
On Tuesday June 9th 2015 the school community conducted a symbolic walk from the Laurel St campus to the Maple St campus heralding the school’s first full day of operation in the new school building. The student enrolment numbers for 2021 remain around 400 which is the capacity of the school. The Student Family Occupation & Employment index (SFOE) is 0.
4710. This figure has decreased continuously over the last three years. The school community has a blend of culturally and economically diverse families presenting the school and students with a rich variety of learning opportunities.
The school has maintained a reasonably stable staffing profile over the past four years. There has been a change in leadership within the school starting with a new principal in 2019 and a new assistant principal in 2020. The school has begun the next phase of its journey and is developing a strong focus on teaching and learning while at the same time ensuring that we fully support the health, wellbeing and engagement of every child so they can achieve academic excellence in an outstandingly inclusive environment.
This is evident in the new School Strategic Plan for 2019 to 2023 which is available on our school website. Our school motto of Working as One is ready for the next stage of its maturity and we will be working hard to embed consistency and develop the leadership skills of all of its members.
