At Healesville Primary School we provide our students with a unique educational opportunity. Our students learn the Woi wurrung language which is the language of the Wurundjeri People as well as learning about the cultural stories.

HPS has four lifelong values that are at the heart of our school. These are Respect, always Learning, Community and Confidence. These values also form the basis for our Positive Education Program where students in multi aged groups work with a teacher for the time they are at our school. We meet four times a term thereby establishing relationships across the school and with another trusted adult. This is another one of our unique programs that focuses on growth mindsets.

HPS are extremely fortunate to have extensive outdoor environments. These are surrounded by Indigenous murals, open play spaces, four shaded playgrounds and multiple outdoor classroom areas. We have a large sustainability hub including chickens and a huge natural play area for cubby building with bush kitchens for mud play.

Our classrooms are warm, engaging and inviting. All rooms have quiet corners where students can read, participate in calming activities, and regulate their emotions. Our behaviour management system is School Wide Positive Behaviour Support, which is a departmental initiative that focuses on rewarding positive behaviour. We pride ourselves on our calm and orderly learning environments. Our teaching approach is differentiated, enabling all students to learn at their point of need. We offer support and extension programs at all levels.
