Gladesville Building Upgrades and Funding Successes

The History of Gladesville Primary School

 

Gladesville opened its doors in February 1974. The official opening was performed by the then Deputy Premier of Victoria and Minister of Education, the Hon. Lindsay Thompson, on 7th October 1977. The Administration and Staff facilities were extensively upgraded in 1991-1992.

Gladesville is situated on approximately 1.2 hectares of land in Kilsyth. The outdoor facilities include an amphitheatre, a variety of playground equipment, extensive hard-court areas providing basketball, netball and bat tennis courts, an oval, soccer pitch and cricket nets. The school has beautiful surrounds including a large bushland area for the children to play amongst.

 

In early 2007, Gladesville Primary School was approved for a complete $2.8 million building and grounds upgrade, funds for water tanks and a further $100,000 'Investing In Our Future' grant for new computers and interactive whiteboards. This upgrade was completed in July 2008.
