Following on from our successful Harmony Week, where we acknowledge coming from different countries/cultures but are the same, human beings, and Australian, I would like to share with you some enlightening resources about neurodiversity


Neuroaffirmative Practice

NeuroWild-Everyone is different 

During this term, I will be providing other resources that may be of interest to you.

As this is the last Hawker Headlines for the term, on behalf of Staff, I thank you for a productive and harmonious Term 1 and wish you all a very happy and safe Easter.  We look forward to seeing you back at school on Wednesday 26 April as Monday 24th is a Professional Learning Day for Staff and Tuesday 25 is the ANZAC Day public holiday.

Happy and Safe Easter!


In 2019, the Let’s Take a Stand Together was introduced by the Department of Education (DoE) as an additional strategy to reduce violence in schools and community with all working together with a common aim.  In the document provided, there were 10 action points, with action #6 stating “New ’good standing’ requirements to be added to school behaviour policies”.  Good Standing states – Students who do the wrong thing will have privileges removed – such as being banned from school social activities.  Students can earn back ‘good standing’ by making amends and behaving well.

As respect is one of our key values, Staff continually educate students to be respectful when addressing each other.  Name-calling, especially using the “N” word, is not permitted and can lead to the loss of ‘good standing’.  Staff try to explain why name-calling can be offensive.  Staff try to explain empathy and how one would feel being called names.

Fortunately, we have such a beautiful school, with parents too modelling respect to their children, so the need to implement the good standing requirements within our Behaviour Support Policy, is minimal.

KidsVolley Sessions start in Term 2, beginning in week 1 and finishing in week 10.

Sessions are designed to introduce students to the sport and then begin to extend them as they progress in their sporting and teamwork abilities. On top of this it acts a beginner for students interested in applying for our Specialist Program next term! However, we encourage and welcome all year groups, we currently have anyone from a pre-primary to year 6 that we are working and catering for this term, all are welcome!

We would love to see more people engaging in a rapidly evolving sport and becoming healthier through their involvement in sport. Beyond that beginning to be part of the Greenwood community and continuing to develop sport and social skills for high school either at Greenwood College or elsewhere, we again welcome all!

HPPS Board Update

Hello all

What a busy start to the year it has been and now here we are, nearly at the end of Term 1.  For those of you who I didn’t meet at the Welcome Picnic, I would again like to extend a warm welcome to all the new families who have joined the school community this year. I work in the education sector and am endlessly impressed by the opportunities and support our children receive at Hawker Park Primary School.

The purpose of the school’s board is to work with the school community to achieve the best outcomes for our students. We meet once a term to discuss school matters and can act as an advisory body for the principal to inform herself before making management decisions.

I joined the board in 2021 and this is my second year as board chair. In this capacity, I meet with Dr Roberts on a weekly basis.

Our School Board is made up the principal, staff at the school, parents, and community members who all volunteer their time. Our current board consists of:

Dr Irma Robert (Principal)

Mr Andrew Etheridge (Associate Principal)

Mrs Liz Everall (SEN Co-ordinator)

Miss Stephanie Germano (Year 1 teacher)

Nicole Arnold (Chair) Parent Representative

Loveinder Madahar (Past Chair) Parent Representative

David Peacock (Parent Representative)

Keely Mundle (Parent Representative)

Salvatore Siciliano (Parent Representative)

Chris Jones (Parent Representative)

Claire Hall (Community Representative)

Jessica Stojkovski (Community Representative)

If you ever have questions for the board, I encourage you to approach one of the members (we are happy to have a chat!) or you can email the board at

Finally, our next board meeting, to be held on Wednesday May 17th (Term 2 Week 4) will be open to the public. It is a requirement of the School Education Act that at least one meeting each calendar year is open to the public and we welcome anyone who may wish to attend.


Hawker Park students participated in the National Ride2School Day on 24th March. Those students who walked to school and rode their bikes enjoyed a piece of fruit for their efforts. It was pleasing to see the number of bikes in the school bike rack.
