Welcome to Junior School

Welcome to St Hilda’s Junior School – a community motivated by a common focus on learning, growing and improving together. Our girls are encouraged to be  curious, to be courageous and to lead.

 Our staff build strong positive relationships, have high expectations of students and themselves and teach girls how to think, not what to think. 

 As you walk the beautiful grounds, spend time in our classrooms or chat with our girls, my hope is that you will gain a strong sense that everyone wants to be here; learning and growing together. 

 I look forward to sharing the St Hilda’s School learning environment with you.

 Tracey Maynard – Head of Junior School

We welcome students to the Junior School from three and half to four years of age and we see them learn and grow from the beautiful kindergarten child, into confident young ladies ready to move onto exciting opportunities in Middle School and to become modern young women. On graduating from Junior School, we see our students as happy, compassionate and creative girls who strive to achieve their best, eager to be involved in many differing activities and are confident to have a voice.

The Junior School is renowned for academic rigour, innovation and our vast range of specialist subjects and co-curricular offerings. This sets us apart from other schools. Our curriculum builds strong foundations in Literacy and Numeracy, stimulates creativity, individuality and cognitive skills. Our modern facilities and picturesque grounds and play areas provide a beautiful setting for a first-class education for any girl.

Anglican traditions, our School motto, Non Nobis Solum, and our values of Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Hope and Grace are woven into all aspects of School life and relationships within the School community.

The broader school community is caring, friendly and engaged. This can easily be seen in the afternoons where playgrounds are full of parents interacting, children playing or involved in one of the many extra-curricular activities which take place each afternoon or in the mornings with many parents sharing a coffee in the Café. Families are welcomed and encouraged to be an active partner in their daughter’s education. Our school has vibrant and engaged parental body that enjoys taking part in the many community events. Some events which are very popular and not to be missed have included – Mother/Daughter Morning, Father/Daughter BBQ Breakfast, House Family Chapels, Expressive Arts Showcase, High Tea, Mother’s Day Classic, Easter Celebrations and Christmas Concerts.

A school where every girl matters, St Hilda’s is an exciting place for girls to learn, grow, dream and achieve. I look forward to welcoming your daughter and your family to our School community.

Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Hope, Grace
