About Greenhills Primary School
Greenhills Primary School is located in the outer northern suburb of Greensborough, tucked away in a wonderfully quiet residential cul-de-sac.
We have an enrollment of 545 students with the majority of our students residing in the immediate locality. Our school’s high profile of education excellence has led to many families to choose Greenhills Primary School for their children.
Our school is the hub of a wonderful family-based community. A close relationship
is fostered between the school, parents and the wider school community.
This is encouraged by an “open-door” policy where families are invited to participate
actively in all aspects of school life.
Greenhills is committed to providing a safe, stimulating and secure learning environment where all students, no matter their gender, ability, culture or circumstances are able to experience a comprehensive curriculum so they are able to reach their full potential.
As we endeavor to foster young people who are well-rounded, resilient and confident, as well as flexible, responsible and creative students - preparing them to meet the challenges of a society where knowledge is highly valued and constantly changing.
We recognise that young people need knowledge and a broad range of social, personal and thinking skills to be successful. They need to develop the capacities to manage themselves as individuals and in relation to others, understand the world in which they live, and act positively in that world.
Opportunities are provided for all children to experience success through a varied and challenging curriculum with a particular emphasis placed on Literacy and Numeracy across the school. Greenhills also features specialist programs in Performing Arts (music), Visual Arts, Library, Physical Education & Sport and LOTE (Italian). Additional assistance programs are provided to those students with special needs. Greenhills also offers a diverse and exciting range of learning and personal development opportunities to Greenhills' students.
All classrooms offer a wide range of computers and technologies to support the curriculum and establishing the use of ICT as a regular part of all learning.
