From the Principal

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of Clifton Hills Primary School.  I am extremely proud to be the Principal of a school that has a history of providing quality education which is strongly supported by the local community.

I look forward to your involvement with Clifton Hills Primary School.  I trust that a close and effective working relationship between the school and home can be established in order to ensure the satisfactory and continual educational development of all children. Our School is one that provides endless opportunity for its students to experience variety and success through the diversity of our programs, the enthusiasm of our staff and the support of our wider school community.  I believe our excellent reputation rests in our strong sense of partnership with the parents and community, the values we celebrate, our commitment to realising the potential of all students, and the provision of a balanced education that addresses the academic, social, emotional and physical aspects of our students’ lives.

Clifton Hills Primary School, as a dynamic and vibrant learning community, aspires to provide your child with opportunities to discover and develop their talents and abilities. This is facilitated through the delivery of a diverse and engaging curriculum including specialist programs in science, music, Japanese, visual arts, physical education and sustainability. Our committed and passionate staff work collaboratively to maximise student learning and school performance.

To enable the students at Clifton Hills Primary School to achieve their academic and social potential, our school has developed a strong positive, collaborative and cooperative culture within the school community. In this context, the learning needs of students, the professional knowledge and enthusiasm of staff, and the expectations of the community are used to establish quality learning and teaching programs and to maximize the educational opportunity and potential for each student.  Your children appreciate your involvement with the school and their learning is enhanced when they can see you consider it important enough to take an active interest.

The achievement of this culture relies on the strong sense of community within the school and the establishment of processes where all groups within the school community feel valued, and have a clear role within the operations and decision-making processes of the school.

This website will give you a general overview of the operations of the school.  Further information is distributed through our school newsletters and at Parents and Citizens meetings. Thank you for visiting our website. For further information please contact the school administration.
