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?

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program (SAKGP)

The SAKGP is in full swing! The year three students have been harvesting produce and cooking beautiful meals since the beginning of Term 1. Please go to the community tab and follow the links to our RECIPES page. You may like to print out a recipe and recreate these delicious dishes at home.

Preschool Accreditation

Congratulations to the Preschool team for achieving a rating overall 'Exceeding National Quality Standard' of the National Quality Framework for preschools.

Story Night

Story night was a huge success! Thank you to Megan Smiles and supporting staff who orchestrated the event. A big thank you to all the parents and students who bought a book for the school library. We are sure all the children will enjoy reading our fabulous new books!

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

APP Talk

The apps will be for iPads because that is what we use at school. They may be available for tablets on the Google App store.

A multi-award winning app that takes a ground-breaking look into the human body with highly accurate, visual and accessible information. The wonders of human anatomy are explored and explained in a way that offers hours of learning, fun and entertainment. It costs $8.99, which is a little pricy, but is well worth it for older primary students (years 4-6) and high school students who need information for assignments.
