Primary School


Hills College considers the education of a child is a shared partnership with parents. To this end, we appreciate the opportunity to be your partners in developing your child to become an active and responsible member of our wider community. The curriculum is organised according to the framework provided by the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) including all year levels from Reception to Year 6. Details of the PYP and of the curriculum areas taught are included in this booklet.
Teaching and learning in the Primary School reflect the view that:

  • Learning is an active process
  • Learning experiences are challenging and engaging to enable all students to explore and build on their knowledge and skills
  • Learning offers opportunity for students to work independently, in teams, collaborate and communicate ideas
  • Learning promotes personal values and attributes such as honesty, resilience, empathy and respect for others
  • Learning to think deeply and logically, and obtain and evaluate evidence to solve problems

Within the planning phase of teaching teachers are considerate of how to motivate all students to reach their personal potential through the provision of accommodating a range of abilities and maturity display at school so skills are introduced at a rate that allows children to progress confidently.We wish every child well in their learning at Hills College. We hope that being part of Hills College will be a wonderful experience for both child and parent. Our teachers look forward to each child’s contribution, both in the classroom and as an active participant in the extra curricular program.
