School Vision

Mission Statement

Gate Pa School exists to provide equal opportunity for each child to reach full potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically, and to develop a desire to learn within a challenging and supportive environment.

School Vision

The Principal and Board of Trustees extend to you a very warm welcome to Gate Pa School.

Our experienced and dedicated staff provides a positive learning environment for over 350 children.

Our goal is the same as yours - to ensure your child has every chance to reach their potential in all areas of development.

Our open door policy is promoted to encourage you to share with us your concerns, ideas and suggestions. We welcome the involvement of parents in our school and the education of your children. Any queries or concerns regarding your child's progress at school can be easily resolved by a visit or phone call to the school.
