Gilmore Primary School provides quality learning opportunities for all students in a positive, safe and supportive learning environment. Our school promotes a positive climate for developing students' confidence, resilience, cooperation, persistence and organisation.
All members of our community are encouraged to contribute to the development of school practices and celebrate our successes in a variety of ways.
We are proud of our academic, sporting and social achievements at Gilmore. We encourage you to subscribe to our Facebook page to continue to support, encourage and promote the very best in every child who attends our school.
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.

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.
