Christmas Hills Primary School
Welcome to our school
Christmas Hills Primary School is a learning environment like no other. We are proud of our thriving and dynamic school.
It is a privilege to get to come and work in our beautiful surroundings with our amazing children each day. Our staff and parents take great joy in seeing the way our children play and learn together across all year levels.
We are deeply committed to the happiness and wellbeing of our students and ensuring that they are provided with outstanding learning experiences every day of the week, every week of the year.
Our school has a strong focus on academic excellence and we pride ourselves on working with our children to help them to understand the learning process and be willing to take risks and be challenged.
Our approach to our students is highly individualised and we are driven to know and understand our children so we can work with them in meaningful ways to achieve their goals.
The absolute belief that we are here for our children is the foundation of every decision we make. They are the most important people in our school and we hold ourselves accountable to this in everything we do.
We welcome you to explore our website and would be most happy to speak with you and your children further if you would like more information.
We proudly acknowledge the Wurundjeri people, the traditional owners of this land, and pay our respects to their Elders, both past and present.
Like no other...
At Christmas Hills Primary we consider our children to be capable of anything they set their minds to. We see our children as equals and strive to be progressive in our approach to meeting their needs. Building their capacity for decision-making, problem-solving and independence are all key goals of our classroom structures.
Our focus in our junior classroom is on the developmental needs of the children and building their foundational skills in Literacy and Numeracy as well as their love of learning.
In our senior classroom we are working to build our childrens' capacity to engage in high school and life beyond. They set their own daily schedules, receive individual work programs and can work collaboratively or independently across the week.
Whilst for enrolment purposes our children are assigned to year levels we absolutely promote a sense of flexibility in learning, so that a year 4 student may access material from year 3, 5, 6 or beyond if and when they feel ready. This approach applies across the school and is evident in the way our children learn and play together every day.
