Welcome to Galway Primary School

If you are new to the Galway Primary family, you just entered into a very special school. Galway Primary is a close-knit educational community that promotes the academic and social development of all students in a safe, friendly environment.

I am honoured and humbled to be the principal of this school.

Our dedicated staff members at Galway Primary serve approximately 1100 learners in grades R-7.

Parents/Guardians are always welcome at our school. We view our parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. Further, we encourage you to become active participants in school programs and activities.

There are many ways to support your child, such as volunteering to help and attending one of our many school events. We certainly understand many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, just as important as volunteering is a nightly routine of reading to your child, talking about their day, and getting them prepared for the next day of school.

I am thrilled to be part of such an outstanding team! We invite you to join our community as we work together to best serve our learners! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have a suggestion, concern, or just a “good story” to share! I look forward to working with you and your children!
