Welcome to Black Hill Primary School


At Black Hill Primary School we are committed to providing the best educational outcomes for all students, focusing on each individual student's ‘point of need’, which is delivered through a differentiated curriculum. Our values reflect our culture in which Excellence in Education is prized and Aspiration, Respect, Integrity, Responsibility and Teamwork form the basis of all that we do.

We have an active and involved school community, with our School Council meeting monthly and our sub-committees meeting regularly to pursue active involvement in all aspects of our school from curriculum; classroom assistance; policy development, grounds and garden initiatives.

We are an aspirational school, placing  students at the centre of all that we do.  We provide wonderful facilities including well-appointed classrooms, extensive playgrounds and outdoor play areas, passive play spaces, a well appointed gymnasium/Visual Arts centre, and an adjoining oval for all students to enjoy.

The school is led by a Coaching Team consisting of the Acting Principal, two Acting Assistant Principals, Leading Teacher and  three Team Coaches/Mentors, representing each of the Professional Learning Teams. The school is structured into four Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) each based on AusVELS levels and specialist programs (P-2 PLT, 3/4 PLT, 5/6 PLT and Specialist PLT). Staff work in these teams to plan with a focus on using data to personalise student learning.

We are well known for our comprehensive Visual and Performing Arts Programs; our rich and diverse sporting programs; our focus on academic rigour; our wide ranging student leadership opportunities; and our 1:1 computer netbook program.

We have an extensive student leadership program which includes School and Vice Captains, Curriculum Advisors, Sports Captains and Vice Captains, Library Captains and Mentor, Arts Captains and Mentors, Environmental Monitors, Energy Auditors, ICT Captains and Mentors, Waste Warriors, Bully Stoppers and Playground Mentors and Supervisors. The Student Leaders and Student Representative Council (Kids Voice) meet regularly to discuss issues, make decisions, organise student events and focus on the students developing leadership skills.

With 545 students currently enrolled from Prep to Year 6 and a further 50 children enrolled at our Kindergarten, Black Hill Primary School and Kindergarten offer our families a highly personalised, caring community environment where children develop lifelong friendships and relationships with students and staff alike.

Our school community is proud of Black Hill Primary School and together we recognise that we all share the role of working together to grow, learn and work collegiately to ensure that the educational, physical and emotional needs of every child are met.
