    Mr Terence Gimpel

    Guardian Angels School is located in the suburb of Ashmore, which is part of the Gold Coast region of Brisbane Catholic Education. Currently the school has an enrolment of 734 students with three classes in each of 7 Year levels from Year 1 to Year 7, and 4 Prep classes. Our average class size is 1 teacher to 30 students. Ours is a school where children are given the opportunity to try different things. Much is offered, such as chess, swim training, sport and PE, music, choir membership, as well as a full academic curriculum. One of the things that makes Guardian Angels such a great place is the staff, many of whom have been here for many years. In fact we have a wonderful blend of youth and experience, both, fortunately possessing a great deal of enthusiasm not only for this school and its community, but also for teaching and learning. I am proud to be Principal of this fine school.

    How Information and Communication Technologies are used to assist learning

    Social climate

    Parent, student and teacher satisfaction with the school

    Guardian Angels embraces the use of ICTs in all year levels. We currently have a 1:1 laptop computer program operating in Years 4-7 ensuring that each child in those year levels has their own laptop. Each classroom in Prep-Year 3 has a minimum of 10 laptop computers and every classroom has an interactive whiteboard. Students in Years 6 and 7 produce a weekly news broadcast which is shown at each Friday's general assembly. This news broadcast is produced by the students for the students and utilises our soundproofed studio containing a green screen, professional lighting, video and sound recording equipment. The use of ICTs at Guardian Angels is embedded into all subject areas rather than the traditional approach of 'computer lessons'.

    Guardian Angels is a welcoming community and actively seeks to involve all members in all activities. A culture exists whereby the partnership between parent, school and the wider community is one that is healthy. Our Behaviour Management Program outlines a Whole-School approach to establishing and maintaining a school climate that is characterised by fairness, charity and a sense of belonging. Children at Guardian Angels have considerable interaction with the elderly residents of De Paul Villa. This is seen as an important part of growing up in our community. We also have a Special Education Development unit at the school, the MacKillop Centre, with caters for students with an intellectual impairment. This centre provides a quality of education for the students who access the program as well as teaching all students the values of compassion and equality.

    Guardian Angels has a long and proud tradition of working closely with the local community to improve and deliver quality relationships amongst all stakeholders. The Parents & Friends meet regularly to plan and deliver activities that respond to parent needs. The meetings provide feedback on initiatives and plans for the year. Through our annual school renewal process feedback from all members of the community is sought to review and inform the school's annual goal setting and review. Through this process the parents, students and teachers have expressed their high degree of satisfaction with the school, its programs and direction it is taking.
