Welcome to Granite Ridge Education Centre. We are a composite school for students in Kindergarten to Grade 12, serving Sharbot Lake, Parham, Tichborne and surrounding areas. Three schools came together to form GREC, Sharbot Lake Public, Hinchinbrooke and Sharbot Lake High and Intermediate School.
At Granite Ridge we are committed to providing all students with quality education in a supportive environment. Collectively we will work with and support all of our students so that they can achieve academic excellence through a variety of learning opportunities and programs that reflect students’ interests and needs. We will strive to increase student engagement and sense of belonging in the school. Finally, we will continue to provide targeted instruction to improve the literacy and numeracy skills of all students.
Parent involvement is important to us at GREC. We encourage our students' parents and guardians to get involved in our school by attending our monthly School Council meetings, special events for families and open houses. There are opportunities for volunteers as well. Our commitment to provide a safe, caring environment where people are treated with dignity and respect is unwavering, and is a whole school responsibility. Our students, staff and parent community take pride in our school, and strive to make everyone feel a part of our supportive family.
Granite Ridge Education Centre is dedicated to the development of each individual by providing a positive, supportive and stimulating learning environment in which all are encouraged to succeed. Individuals are encouraged to accept challenge and change, to strive tothe best of their abilities and to appreciate the value of life-long learning. It is our aim that each student will face the future and its challenges with a positive attitude and confidence for success.
