The school community is very excited because next year we will be able to provide before and after school care for the students at Hillside. Norwest Community Childcare was the successful tender to provide the facility at Hillside. We look forward to the school being able to support our parents and students before and after school. A great addition to our school.
Steam room a huge success
At the beginning of 2019, the school established a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) room to cater for all students. The room is constantly in use by all teaching staff to foster hands on learning, collaboration and creativity. Recently the older students buddied up with one of the younger students to design and make a maze. It was wonderful to see the younger students totally engrossed with the planning and making of the maze with their older buddies. A wonderful learning experience for all students.
Hugely successful trivia night
A big thank you must go to the local community who supported Hillside’s Trivia and Silent Auction Night held recently at Glenorie RSL. The money raised assisted in the provision of extra teaching days to ensure the school students are in small classes five days a week.
To Glenorie RSL, Woolworths, Riverside Oaks, Dan Murphy’s, Del Rio Resort, Café Sasanqua, Bivianos, Nati Roses, Big W, Bean Everywhere, Snap Fitness, Allseal Specialist Flooring and Galston Aquatic and Leisure Centre a big thank you for supporting the school in our major fundraiser.
The students have enjoyed the bountiful harvest of potatoes and peaches that they have been cultivating in our orchard and vegetable garden. The potatoes were planted by the senior class during a science unit being studied earlier this year. The students harvested over 30kg of potatoes out of the one garden bed and shared them with all of the Hillside families and staff. The students also harvested the crop of peaches and enjoyed eating them during fruit break and taking them home to share with their families. Hands on learning at its best!
If you are looking for a caring school where your child is an individual and not a number, then Hillside is your school! We can offer small class sizes, unique programs and individual learning plans for every child.
