From the Principal

Hello and welcome to Greenhills Primary School.

My name is James Penson and I am both honoured and proud to be the Principal of this school.  

Schools are fantastic places to be. What makes them GREAT are the students, teachers and parents.


At Greenhills Primary we are really fortunate to have such a dynamic and committed teaching team supported by an active and involved school community. 

My focus as Principal of Greenhills Primary is to ensure our students are given the environment in which to thrive and the opportunities, support and encouragement to achieve their very best. This is achieved when students, teachers and parents are unified in their outlook and can partner effectively. 


At Greenhills Primary, we deliver a comprehensive education built around the core pillars of literacy, numeracy and curiosity. Our broad curriculum also offers rich experiences in Physical Education, Performing and Visual Arts and Italian, all supported by an extensive array of learning technologies. The many extra-curricular and leadership opportunities provided to our students helps to create an engaging and interesting environment which promotes student voice and agency.

In addition, we are committed to developing our students into the best individuals they can be through a program built on our values of Grit, Respect, Effort, Adventure & Teamwork. In this way we aim to best prepare our students for the next stage of their learning journey as they move to secondary school. 

Greenhills Primary School is a GREAT place to learn and grow. Our website is a fantastic place to start finding out more about our school. You are also welcome to tour the school and see our teaching and learning in action. If you have any questions or would like to book a tour, please contact me through the school office 9435 4181 or via my email,

I look forward to working in a partnership with you to deliver an excellent education for your child; an education that is rich in experiences, personalised and flexible in delivery, and comprehensive in its scope.
