Gordon GOLD

Gordon Gold

At Gordon Primary School, we pride ourselves on instilling four basic values across the school. These values are explicity taught and communicated with students through the Gordon Gold Social Skills Program. Assembly awards are also given to students who demonstrate these values during the preceeding fortnight. The values are:

  1. Responsibility
  2. Honesty
  3. Tolerance
  4. Respect

As part of Gordon Primary Schools commitment to social skills development we are now a KidsMatter School.  This philosophy instills concepts that support all students to feel valued and part of the Gordon community.  It fosters our Gordon Gold values and encourages students to be responsible for their actions and resilient when faced with adverse situations.  This is achieved through the incorporation of the Bounce Back program which is taught weekly in classes.  You can find further information regarding KidsMatter under Publications.

Bounce Back:

Bad times don't last

Other people can help if you talk to them

Unhelpful thinking makes you feel more upset

Nobody is perfect

Concentrate on the positives

Everybody experiences bad times


Blame fairly

Accept what can't be changed

Catastrophising exaggerates your worries

Keep things in perspective
