Principal’s message

Dear Parents,

Hillarys Primary School has a rich history and strong reputation as a dynamic school which is caring and achievement-focused, and advocates for the needs of every student in its care.

‘Every Student, Every Classroom, Every day!’

We believe in doing our very best for our students and supporting them in every way we can – making learning exciting, purposeful and rewarding. At Hillarys Primary School we pride ourselves on maintaining a proactive and solution-focused approach, striving for a sense of belonging, community, connectedness, wellbeing and empowerment.

Hillarys Primary School is renowned for delivering unique and innovative programs which promote inquiry learning, critical thinking, creativity and excellence.  This is enhanced further by providing an engaging, differentiated and balanced curriculum in a learning environment that is respectful, safe and kind.

We pride ourselves on building positive and productive relationships with the school community and working together as a supportive team.  Our commitment to partnerships and collaboration creates a vibrant and nurturing culture that supports students and teachers, and effective teaching and learning.  This promotes a strong sense of trust, school achievement and school pride throughout the entire community.

Our school vision of Connected Community, Engaged Educators and Successful Students is supported by a strategic focus on five important values – Respect, Responsibility, Inclusivity, Care and Motivation.

Hillarys Primary School cultivates an accepting, collaborative and innovative learning community – inspiring students to become capable, resilient and motivated learners who can adapt and thrive in an ever changing world.  This is achieved through the efforts of our experienced and dedicated staff, and through the wonderful support of our parents, P&C and School Board.

We all work together to make a difference for every child at Hillarys Primary School. 

I invite you to become an active and supportive member of our vibrant school culture and vision.

Yours truly

Trevor Mitchell
