Opened in 1982 as a Level 5 School by Foundation Principal Lou Moran, the catchment area of this northern suburbs school in Warwick is contained by Warwick and Beach Roads, the Mitchell Freeway and Erindale Road. The original area was the ‘Springvale Estate’ development. Despite research, there appears to be no significance in the origin of the name ‘Hawker’. This northern suburbs school in Warwick is located 17 km north of the CBD and walking distance from the Warwick train station.
Hawker Park Primary is surrounded by natural bushland and large open spaces which combine to create a calm and inviting place of learning.
Enrolment is generally between 225-250 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 giving the school a strong community feel.
We offer a pre-kindergarten transition program for enrolled children to attend with their parents, for two hours each week in term 4.
The school has a well-established and successful BYOD, 1:1 Apple device program for Years 4-6 while the younger students access a bank of school iPads.
As an Independent Public School, Hawker Park Primary motivates and inspires all students. We offer a safe and positive flexible learning environment which actively fosters students’ social, emotional and academic attributes. Our pastoral care is based on our three core values of respect, kindness and manners.
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).
