A warm welcome to Hills Primary School,
We are proud to be a small school who knows each child’s strengths, challenges and interest in order to personalise learning. Our understanding of the learner is the foundation of our approach to learning, teaching and wellbeing.
Our curriculum prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. We focus on the development of the whole child through a transdisciplinary approach to learning. Encouraging our students to move beyond surface level thinking by challenging them to develop an enduring understanding and to take responsibility for their own learning. Through nurturing strong interpersonal relationships, social and emotional intelligence our students are guided to practice empathy, listen closely to others and being aware of their own and other people’s feelings.
A collaborative culture is at the core of our school. It’s not just about students working together, fostering a community of learning but also includes teachers and staff members. Hills recognise the benefits of teacher collaboration by sharing their knowledge, ideas and best practice to continually improve their skills, and ultimately, enhance student learning outcomes empowering them to achieve their personalized learning goals.
Our school is attuned to global issues impacting upon our earth. To this end, we are constantly evaluating solutions which our students can action for positive impact on our environment. Hills has serval initiatives which students can play an active role by bringing Nude Food for lunch, recycling our cans as well as being fortunate to have all classrooms fully air condition, powered by our on-site solar farm. Through taking individual and collective action, students come to understand the responsibilities associated with being internationally minded and to appreciate the benefits of working with others for a shared purpose. When students see tangible actions that they can choose to take to make a difference, they see themselves as competent, capable and active agents of change (Oxfam 2015).
