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.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT WANNIASSA HILLS?

Astronomy Night - "Under the Stars" 

We will be holding an Astronomy Evening on Wednesday September 24 from 6:00pm until 7:30pm. On the night there will be telescopes, sausages, a range of activities for students to enjoy: construction, colouring, and simple experiments to name a few, and the majesty of the stars.

The night will also showcase our Inaugural WHPS Science competition. See our flyer for competition details.

WHPS APP of the week.....  Logo of the Lego App

This is a new section for our newsletter to help parents and students select good educational apps or web sites that we use at school or we think may be useful for you at home. The apps will be for iPads because that is what we use at school.

Lego Movie Maker App is free on the Apple App store. For students and grown-ups who love playing and creating with Lego – THIS IS THE APP FOR YOU! Create your Lego scene and follow the app instructions to make your very own Lego movie. Hours of fun and entertainment and working out how to create a movie. The best holiday activity!
