About Us

Blue Gum Community School (Blue Gum) is a small community-based, secular independent school offering education programs for 0-16 year olds. Opened in 1998 and located in Canberra, Australia, Blue Gum is ‘Australian-made’ and named after a robust  Australian native eucalypt tree. Our school values our Australian context, environment and inheritance, but connects globally – sharing with, and learning from, educators in other cultures. Blue Gum adopts a personalised, strengths-based approach to education where every student can be successful. Our smallness is our strength – students’ individual interests and passions contribute to their learning community’s exploration of unlimited research possibilities. Influential philosophical reference points are Project-Based Learning, the Reggio Emilia experience, Big Picture Education, Slow Schooling, Nature Education, Place-Based Education, Positive Psychology etc.

Supports models of best practice in education. Operates Blue Gum Community School.
