The school has by in large hard working and committed staff. There's a HUGE staff turnover and it's mainly because of the showpony principal who does nothing to help the staff and kids but loves the limelight and knows all the right words to use.
Some lovely kids and a supportive community
No school is perfect, but Geraldine is pretty solid and the teacher try very hard with minimal support from the principal. It is a great school if you want to get stuck in. In terms of vaping, smoking etc. you simply need to have a back bone and be able to say no. It as simple as that. The facilities are pretty good and a lot of the teachers know their stuff. Great outdoor facilities (ropes course, PIA, outdoor ed, school pool). Solid school.
i don’t like this school, very average overall and have no extra help for learning difficulties like dyslexia and adhd witch i have and my teachers are aware of this yet i get no help. some decent teachers tho, this is my 5th year going and i have most definitely learnt more on all the days i’ve missed school than in school, still don’t know all my times tables 👍🏼
The staff lack empathy towards students who are struggling mentally, as well as teachers targeting certain students with snide remarks.
Well-being is a joke, it is only brought up in the health curriculum but when well-being is of concern, it is never allowed to be prioritised.
Bullying is inevitable, you are either bullied or are the bully. Which teachers and other members of staff fail to act upon.
It is concerning the quick turnover of newer staff members.
All this school cares about is their Primary Industry Academy, the only part of the school where the teacher has placed a lot of time and effort into their teaching and opportunities for the students. The achievements of students academically rarely get acknowledged.
Sports that are not rugby or netball are greatly neglected.
The school has alot of bullies bringing down other students, they dont really support alot of children in things they just care about doing the work and going to school not the children's wellbeing and mental health. They can be a good school for learning but students aren't the nicest and teachers aren't as supportive as they could be.
There is also alot of students who drink and smoke whilst at school which isn't appropriate.
