Welcome to Hampton Park Primary School
Hampton Park Primary originally opened in 1955. The school is located in pleasant tree filled grounds with ovals, play areas and equipment for all age levels. There is an Early Childhood building that was built in 2010 giving rooms for the Kindergarten and two Pre Primary classes. In addition, we have a large outdoor playground which contains climbing equipment, a nature playground and bike tracks.
The school has a strong focus on explicit teaching, in particular the numeracy and literacy areas. Staff monitor student progress to ensure all children are achieving at their personal best. Specialist teachers cover the areas of Phys-Ed, Science, Music, Mandarin, Drama, Health and Library Studies.
There are various sporting facilities at the school, including a large oval, two new fully enclosed basketball/netball courts plus an enclosed undercover area. The school also boasts a well equipped music room, a Science lab/Art room with the latest equipment, a large computer lab, including 3D printers, an extensive number of iPads and laptops, plus a large library. The school also offers Mandarin lessons for Years One to Six. There is a large number of digital technology devices available to be used by the children.
We participate in interschool sporting competitions with several local primary schools. Participating in a variety of events with these similar sized schools is very beneficial to our students. Events include: AFL, Basketball, Soccer, Netball, Volleyball, Touch Rugby, Cross Country and athletics carnivals. In addition, we hold an in-school swimming carnival annually.
There is strong community support within the school, with a strong School Board and a very active P&C Association which always welcomes new members. We are a Water Wise and Waste Wise accredited school, sending recyclable products to seven different companies. We have an extensive vegetable garden that the children work in, including two worm farms which utilise recycled food scraps from the canteen.
There are a variety of clubs held after school depending on teacher availability. Previous clubs have included Salsa Dancing, Cooking Club, STEM Club, Running Club and Gardening Club.
During school hours, our senior children participate for one hour a week in clubs, including the School Choir, Drama Club, News and Media Club, Arts and Crafts, STEM Club and Challenge Club.
We are able to offer support for children who need literacy intervention though our MiniLit and MultiLit program.
At Hampton Park Primary School the staff are all very dedicated and we work as a cohesive unit.
