Glen Waverley South Primary School is committed to lifelong learning by providing an inclusive, supportive and nurturing community in which diversity is valued and celebrated.
Our innovative curriculum and culture of excellence creates a stimulating learning environment that engages and challenges students to achieve personal success and make positive contributions to society.
Every year, students at GWSPS from years 3 & 5 participate in the nationwide NAPLAN tests. We encourage parents to take time to learn about the purpose for these tests, as well as ways you can help your child prepare.

BYO iPad Program 2019
For parents of students in Levels 3-6 in 2019, please ensure to familiarise yourself with our BYO iPad Program. This is a non-compulsory program which allows students to bring their own iPad to school to use as a companion device to their learning. We also have a Security Workshop video which runs parents through setting up usage agreements and how to keep children safe online.
