|At East Hamilton Hill Primary School, we pride ourselves on being the school of choice for families living in and around Hamilton Hill. We provide a caring and positive school environment for children in the local community. The school community has a strong sense of pride over the achievements of its students both in and out of the classroom and is constantly striving to provide the best education and social development for all students.
Our motto is: Inspired Learning Inspired Future. Our goal is to create happy, respectful, confident, self-motivated and successful children who seize opportunities and make worthwhile contributions to our world.
Our teachers and staff are passionate about student learning and work collaboratively across all year levels to improve the educational outcomes of all children. We offer a number of whole school teaching programs such as Let’s Decode, Spelling Mastery, CARS & STARS, Talk for Writing, and Stepping Stones Mathematics, to ensure that all children receive opportunities to shine and be successful.
We offer quality speciality programs in music, health and physical education, Noongar Language, and science and design technologies. We are also a host school for the Primary Extension and Challenge program. Our choir has many opportunities to perform at school events and children in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to be a part of the Instrumental Music Program, hosted by Fremantle College. We regularly compete in sporting events.
The development of your child is a key focus at our school. We have a fantastic values program in place where children are encouraged to treat others decently and are acknowledged for their good deeds and strong values. The figure head of the values program is a giant bear named TOD (Treat Others Decently) who is a popular member of the school community and visits during assemblies to recognise children who have demonstrated strong values. In addition, every classroom is involved in the highly successful Bounce Back program, teaching children about resilience and positive relationships, as well as Protective Behaviours.
We are fortunate to have an active and strong School Board and P&C group who work tirelessly to promote the fantastic work we achieve, and to form community partnerships that benefit the school. We have a parent room where you can access support from others and engage socially in a comfortable environment. We also have a Breakfast Club – providing healthy and nutritious meals for children every school day.
Our new facilities include a science room, an new early childhood area and a dynamic nature playground which is the hub of community activity after school.
