Gowrie SA focuses on community, social justice and the capacities of each child to inform their programs. We are committed to our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

We offer fully funded leadership and professional learning opportunities, both internally and externally, to support our educators in building their knowledge and understanding, which assists professional growth and career development.
