Hilder Road State School is a co-educational state primary school with an enrolment of around 480 students. The school is of modern design set on 6.4 hectares and regularly accessed by local sporting clubs. Our school community consists of highly supportive families who value education. Quality teaching, high expectations and a commitment to continuous improvement provide the impetus for maximising student achievement. As a result, our students regularly perform above national/state benchmarks. The school is managed via a well-defined decision making structure involving staff, parents, students and the wider community.
Our motto is ‘Education is Life’ and we strive to help children achieve ‘success embedded in a culture of care’ through the implementation of our RECIPe for success (see mission and values page). In addition to academic subjects, children participate in physical education, music and LOTE (Chinese - Year 5 and Six) programs taught by specialist teachers. In Years 4 to 6, children are involved in Friday afternoon sport/cultural activities. Student participation in choirs from Prep onwards is exceptional and instrumental music is offered in Strings, Woodwind, Brass and Percussion. Over its 39 years, the school community has developed a sense of pride from the academic, sporting, musical and cultural achievements of our students.
