Welcome to Wanniassa Hills Primary School

At Wanniassa Hills Primary we work with the community to make the most of every child's natural talents. The school promotes active citizenship, encourages participation and rewards productivity.

We are here to provide children with safe and friendly learning environments from which they can make real connections to a contemporary world of opportunities.
