The weather may have been gloomy but the news certainly was not at the Official Sod Turning for The Anglican School Googong.

Mayor of Queanbeyan Tim Overall, Member for Monaro John Barilaro, Bishop Stuart Robinson of the Anglican Dioceses of Canberra Goulburn, Graham Willard (Chair of The Anglican School Googong Board), Ian Hewitt (Foundation Principal of The Anglican School Googong), Caroline Whitelum (CIC Australia), Michael Nolan (CIC Australia) and Tyronne Bell (Elder from the Ngunawal People) were all present to mark the commencement of construction for the first school in the new township of Googong.

The announcement of the Preschool – Year 12 School has been welcomed by residents of Queanbeyan, Jerrabomberra and surrounding areas, with many expressions of interest coming in.

The Anglican School Googong offers students and their families the latest in educational facilities, learning technologies and nearby access to state-of-the-art resources, such as a pool and tennis courts.

We are currently offering placements from Pre-school to Year 2 in 2015. To find out more about enrolments, please visit:

The new school will be a welcoming and inviting place where all students, teachers and the community will feel safe and at ease. The school will contain modern facilities that meet the diverse needs and individual learning styles of students well into the future.

Specifically the school will provide a rich and stimulating physical learning environment in which learners engage and learning flourishes.

  • Learning spaces that provide flexibility, visibility and allow for a variety of learning styles and organisational structures.
  • Spaces designed to enable students to withdraw for independent study; to work in partnership with another; form a small group; gather together as a large group and/or assemble with all members of their year.
  • Students and staff feel secure and have a sense of wellbeing in their physical learning environments.
  • A strong relationship between internal and external environments.
  • Student amenities located in close proximity to the main learning areas.
  • The physical learning environment furnished and fitted out in a manner consistent with students’ developmental stages.
  • Environmentally conscious incorporating natural light and a high standard of environmental control.
  • The buildings will be easily maintained and respected by staff and students.
