Welcome to Hilton Primary School
A Great Place to Learn and Grow
Hilton Primary is an Independent Public School, established in 1950 and still flourishing. Our lovely school commemorates the 70th year on 11th September 2020. We are located five kilometres from central Fremantle, surrounded by our beautiful natural and managed landscape. We are fortunate to have the Hilton Harvest Community Garden sharing our ample grounds, adjacent to our Early Childhood Centre. Our Sustainability goal at Hilton Primary School is for all of our students and staff to act as ambassadors for the environment: to care for our planet and each other.
Hilton Primary School has a long and respected association with Noongar culture. We acknowledge that our school is on Wadjuk Noongar land and that we are the current custodians of this land, to be shared with all who come here. We acknowledge the richness of Wadjuk Noongar culture and the significance of First Nations people in the past, present and future. We strive to walk the journey of Reconciliation with First Nations people and continue to respect the contributions of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous people to the education of students, staff and families at Hilton Primary School.
Our current Business Plan (2018-2020) includes our Vision: “Hilton Primary School aims to foster a love of learning in a community that is inclusive, nurturing and engaged.” From Kindergarten to Year 6, we strive for excellence in teaching and learning, and seek to balance explicit teaching with play-based learning and nature pedagogy through our school. Current and prospective families are very welcome to visit our school and to see this Vision in action. Our students enact our Triple C ethos of Courtesy, Consideration and Cooperation through all of our teaching, learning and play programs.
We value the diversity of our school and community. In addition to the 12% of students who identify as Australian Aboriginal, we have significant numbers of French and German families. Our youngest children enjoy German, French and English speaking Play Groups, affiliated with Playgroups WA. Our very supportive Parents and Carers work with our Staff through our Parents and Citizens Association, Our School Board, our Grounds Committee and as Class Representatives. We invite you to join us online or by visiting.
