Welcome to the Hambledon Public School Website for 2014. Our school serves a small part of the Quakers Hill neighbourhood, which has only become fully established over the past twenty years. Education is highly valued by our community and as a school community we have high expectations for our students. Our school motto “learning for life” inspires us to equip students with the skills to learn and to adapt in an ever-changing world, at the same time being “lifelong learners”.
Our dedicated and conscientious staff has student learning and welfare as their main goal. A mixture of experienced and early career teachers provide purposeful and engaging learning activities which cater for all students.
We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school, focussing on teaching students the expected behaviours, rather than reacting negatively after a behaviour is displayed. Our School Learning Support Team (LST) provides aid for students experiencing learning difficulties or requiring additional assistance. The LST also coordinates activities to further foster and develop gifted students across the school.
At Hambledon we have constructed an environment which reflects the technological world of today. Our school has a connected classroom for video conferencing, a computer lab, a research centre based in the library and interactive whiteboards in all classrooms.
Our targets for this year are the development of skills in oracy, mathematical problem solving and maintaining a safe and happy playground through the use of social skills.
This website serves to assist you to become acquainted with our school and the many activities which take place. Please use the site to view examples of student work, dates of upcoming events, and general information.
If you have any enquiries about our highly successful school, or you wish to become more actively involved, please contact the school.
I look forward to meeting and working with the Hambledon Public School Community over the coming years.
