Why choose HCCS Primary?

Why choose HCCS Primary?

Families choose to send their children to HCCS Primary for some of the following reasons:

  • Children are respected as unique creations of God with individual strengths, gifts and talents
  • We have attracted and maintained a team of outstanding teachers
  • Numeracy and literacy learning is strong, while creative pursuits are encouraged
  • Children’s emotional, social, spiritual, physical and musical growth is valued and nurtured
  • Children feel safe and empowered because of respectful relationships between students and staff and fair discipline practices
  • Our teachers work in teams where they discuss children’s learning, pre and post learning tasks, moderation of children’s work, implementing the Australian Curriculum, the learning needs of specific children etc etc. These meetings are the ‘powerhouses’ of the Primary School and a member of the leadership is generally present.
