LEARNING. RELATIONSHIPS. INTEGRITY. CHILDREN. I am immensely proud of GEMS Wellington Primary School; it is an exceptional school. Every child has the right to a world class education. Every child is an individual and must have their needs met. The children pass through this school only once – we have to get it right first time. The children of our school are wonderful and special; they are the lifeblood of our school. They embody the aspirations of GEMS Wellington Primary School as enthusiastic, charismatic, charming young people with an appetite for learning and a thirst for knowledge. We know that children who are happy and secure in their learning environment are children who are more likely to achieve their potential. GEMS Wellington Primary School is a special place to learn.
