At Glennie, we understand that each girl is an individual with her distinctive strengths, challenges, and interests, and every learning pathway is genuinely unique. Our vibrant and supportive community empowers each girl to be proud of who she is, building the confidence and courage needed to reach her full potential and create her future.
Glennie’s individualized learning environment, together with the best contemporary teaching methods and dynamic growth and wellbeing programs, will offer your daughter the opportunity to explore and develop her unique passions and talents, providing her the personal attention she needs to be All She Can Be.
Glennie girls are educated to the highest standards of which they are capable. Also, Glennie girls are given the opportunities to develop their sporting and cultural talents through a rich, diverse, and relevant extra-curricular program. By achieving an understanding of their spiritual dimension, Glennie girls will make a positive contribution to the world with a sense of their worth and character, in addition to a well-developed sense of citizenship.
As well-skilled, well-rounded, and well-grounded young people of excellent character and integrity, Glennie girls will be able to be all they can be. As a community where tomorrow’s women learn, our mission is to provide girls with dynamic opportunities in education, training, and personal growth, which develop their potential and prepare them for life. We incorporate traditional values within a caring, Christian environment, and the best contemporary teaching methods and learning experiences.
The Glennie School’s educational philosophy recognizes each Glennie girl as a unique person whose developmental needs are best met within a loving and inclusive community where she can find a sense of belonging and happiness and opportunities for fulfillment. A Glennie education is holistic and seeks to help each girl integrate her mental, physical, spiritual, social, and emotional dimensions.
The school encourages commitment to a sound work ethic, self-discipline, and service, within the context of the Anglican faith and ethos. Girls at Glennie are encouraged to follow a Christian way of life. The School endeavors to teach a set of moral and spiritual values and traditional codes of behavior, good manners, and honesty exhibited in our society. The teaching of personal values seeks to make our students responsible and caring members of their communities.
Natural talents are developed through academic and practical learning. The acquisition of knowledge and skills develops independent and critical thinking necessary for further study, employment, and personal welfare. Our four core values underpin all that we do and stand for as the Glennie community and are continually reinforced and practiced daily.
Integrity: We are truthful and sincere. We ensure consistency between what we say and what we do and between what we believe and how we behave.
Respect: We respect ourselves and treat others with courtesy, dignity, and positive regard. We honor the rights of others. We respect our school, the environment, and the world around us.
Compassion: We are sensitive to the needs of each individual. We support and nurture those less fortunate than ourselves. We treat each other as we wish to be treated ourselves.
Courage: We continue to strive to improve as individuals, and we remain optimistic, resilient, and forward-thinking, despite adversity or challenge. We know that perseverance, effort, and a growth mindset can help us as individuals and as members of a team to benefit ourselves and our community.
