Indonesian Teachers Visit GGHS
Welcome to our visitors from Indonesia, who have been our guests at Golden Grove High School from 9 to 22 August. These seven teachers are part of a larger group who have come to South Australia to observe, learn and reflect on their own educational system. Every day they go to all lessons in their subject area to observe and exchange views with Golden Grove HS teachers. We thank all of our teachers who have supported this program by allowing the Indonesian teacher to observe their lessons. … Read more ...Indonesian Teachers Visit GGHS

Welcome to Koishikawa School
On Monday 8 August at 4.15pm we warmly welcomed 19 enthusiastic but tired Year 9 students and their teacher to Adelaide and Golden Grove High School. This is the first time we are hosting students from Koishikawa Secondary School. The students arrived by bus from Adelaide Airport, after a long 11 hour flight from Tokyo. A welcoming committee including staff, Student Voice President Ben, Vice President Talia and host brothers and sisters greeted our visitors on arrival. We were all excited to finally meet them. The red carpet was rolled out for our very special international visitors! Upon arrival, they were greeted by our Principal, Paul Wilson who formally welcomed all of our international guests. After a few photos were taken, it was time for the students to sit and have a few… Read more ...Welcome to Koishikawa School
Canberra Trip 2016
The weather in Adelaide gave us a great send off as we left GGHS at 3pm on our way across the border to Canberra. Stopping off briefly in Renmark to fill our tummies for the overnight ride, the Renmark Hotel made sure we didn't go hungry! We hopped back on the bus, settled in with a movie and some creative sleeping positions and waited for the sun to rise on the Eastern states. A fresh start in Yass with a much welcomed McDonalds breakfast, change of clothes and we were ready to start our first day in the nation's capital. Our morning was filled with exploration through the Botanic Gardens, marveling at being able to walk through a Tasmanian rainforest and an outback desert climate within a few hundred meters of each other! If the students weren't awake yet, the fresh morning spray of… Read more ...Canberra Trip 2016
Canberra Trip 2015
This morning was a later start, allowing students to quickly tidy their rooms
and pack their bags as we would be heading home on the bus tonight after
dinner. We started our last day of touring the Capital at the National Library.
A stunning building, we were led inside and split into two groups to explore
the behind-the-scenes workings of the library. It was fascinating to hear about
how records and books were kept in places like the morgue and train stations
before having a National library built by demand. Still contemporary, despite
being built in the 60's, the library houses over 2 million items, with a
further 7 million at other facilities! Taken downstairs to the archives, students were shown the old tube shoot system
where requests for books would be made and sent back up to the library… Read more ...Canberra Trip 2015
