Welcome to Golden Horn Elementary School
Golden Horn Elementary School embraces a student focused education, inspiring youngsters to lead fulfilling lives. We aim to provide challenge and achievement through academic, athletic, cultural and social endeavours. The goal of our G.O.E.S program is to engage students in learning that takes places in context, where the learner is appropriately challenged with a range of opportunities and experiences to develop essential skills and qualities. G.O.E.S encourages students in learning-by-doing, whether in the classroom, on field trips or in the beautiful forest that surrounds our school. At Golden Horn Elementary School everyone belongs...everyone has a place!
