FROM DR ROBERTS Clever pre-primary students!! For those of you who were able to attend our last School Assembly, I am sure you would agree,
Hawker Park Primary is an Independent Public School surrounded by natural bushland and large open spaces which combine to create a calm and inviting place of learning.
This northern suburbs school in Warwick is located 17 Km north of the CBD and walking distance from the Warwick train station. Enrolments currently stand at 225 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 giving the school a strong community feel. We offer an Early Learners programme for pre-kindergarten children to attend with their parents, for two hours each week.
In 2014 we began the implementation of the ICT 1:1 Apple device program for Years 2-6. By 2017 we have students in Years 4-6 excelling with their laptops used across the whole curriculum.
With strong support from parents, over 90% of our students from years 4-6 have their own devices while the younger students access a bank of school iPads and desktop computers.
As an Independent Public School, Hawker Park Primary endeavours to motivate and inspire all students by offering a safe and positive environment which actively fosters their social, emotional and academic attributes to their full potential. Our pastoral care is based on our three core values of respect, kindness and manners.
We seek to facilitate and develop enthusiastic lifelong learners who are able to positively participate both independently and collaboratively in the 21st Century exhibiting leadership, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, resilience, perseverance, compassion and happiness.
Invaluable direction and support is provided to the school through community representatives, parents, staff, the School Board and an active Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C).
Our dedicated and highly competent staff ensure our focus continues to be on literacy, numeracy and values with an emphasis on using technology as a learning tool throughout the whole curriculum.
