Teaching and Learning at Hurstbridge Primary School


Hurstbridge Primary School strives to provide an environment that develops the whole child where they attain the skills to become fully contributing members of society. We encourage our students to become life-long learners who value themselves, others, knowledge, curiosity and their environment and indeed strive to “Imagine, Believe, Achieve”.Our core values of Respect, Cooperation, Integrity, Trust, Honesty and Tolerance are promoted through our dedicated staff and willing students.Excellent communication and dynamic programs, such as TRIBES, foster strong partnerships within the school community which help students develop to their full potential with life skills including responsibility, communication, independence, inquiring minds, problem solving and creativity.

All staff members endeavour to provide a safe yet challenging environment which encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour to enhance academic excellence and promote future learning by building on their strengths and experiences.

Our teaching staff work in teams to provide high quality curriculum to our students. Our priorities are literacy and numeracy which are delivered through diverse learning experiences which cater to students differing learning styles. These diverse experiences allow us to seamlessly integrate other major curriculum areas such as science, geography and history.

We are very fortunate to have experienced staff who are also able to provide additional assistance through either intervention or extension programs where appropriate.

Being a well resourced school, we are able to support specialised staff to deliver Physical Education, Music, Art and LOTE (Italian).

We have an active school council with parents committed to improving the school for all students. There are also various dedicated parent groups which actively support the school in many ways though such means as; fundraising, organising social events and working with students to connect with their environment.

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your child to ensure they receive a balanced, successful and fulfilling school experience.
