Latest news: Resident Artist Byrd

As Byrd's work with our students nears completion, here is a clip broadcast on 7:30 ACT showing three practicing artists (including Byrd) who work on other street art that is being painted on walls of Canberra's laneways.

We thank Byrd for his work, in collaboration with students at Gilmore, to extend the teaching of contemporary art practise and for strengthening our students' understanding of art and culture within our school community.

We are a SunSmart School

Given students are at school during peak ultraviolet radiation (UVR) times throughout the day, between 10am and 3pm, schools play a major role in both minimising a student's UV exposure.

With this in mind, Gilmore Primary School realises the need to protect student's skin and educate them about SunSmart behaviour.

To achieve this, we encourage all students to follow our SunSmart policy by:

Wearing a SunSmart hat, along with appropriate clothing
The Cancer Council recommends hats with a 7.5cm brim, legionnaire-style or bucket (minimum of 6cm brim). With clothing, the Cancer Council recommends clothing with collars, sleeves and are made out of closely woven fabric (natural fibres). 

Use shaded or covered areas when outdoors 

Act as positive role models for other students in all aspects of SunSmart behaviour

The ACT Education and Training Directorate also encourage all ACT primary schools to join the National SunSmart Schools Program. 

To find out more information, please visit The Cancer Council ACT website at

The Gilmore Primary School Facebook page is not intended for or designed to attract anyone, under the age of 13, to create their own Facebook account to access content on this page. We do not intentionally or knowingly collect personal information on this site from those who are under 13.

We encourage parents to be involved in the online activities of their children to ensure no information is collected from a child without parental permission.
