principal's welcome

The partnership of students, staff and parents work together to create a safe, inviting and motivating environment.

Established in 1871, Heyfield Primary School is committed to providing quality educational opportunities for all it’s students. Our present enrolment is 183 students in Years Prep through to Year 6. Currently we have 8 composite classes.

The school has modern classroom facilities that include 8 classrooms, an art room and a fully stocked library. We encourage and support our students to be the best they can be academically and socially. Our strategic learning focusses are on Literacy and Numeracy.

Providing quality learning opportunities for our students is enhanced through an environment where the students develop self-esteem, confidence, independence, caring and co-operative attitudes. See the Student Wellbeing page for more information. The partnership of students, staff and parents work together to create a safe, inviting and motivating environment.

Our comprehensive classroom based curriculum is supported by specialist classes in Art, Library and Indonesian / Studies of Asia as well as through the use of ICT that sees the students access technology such as: IPads, Netbooks, Notebooks, Desktop computers and Interactive Whiteboards.

We provide a challenging learning environment to equip our students for the future through honing our School Values. See the School Values page for more information.

A wide variety of play facilities and equipment are available to students when outdoors to promote physical activity, creativeness and collaborative play. These include a sports oval, junior and senior adventure playground, fitness circuit, rebound wall and large sandpit. Additional to this wide variety of equipment is “PLAYMART”. PLAYMART is our storage of creative play promoting materials of a recycled nature. Students love making cubbies, dressing up, role playing, designing and experimenting; whilst also appreciating the benefits of recycling such materials.
