A message from our Principal
Welcome to our school!
We are proud of Pakenham Hills Primary School and your child is important to us.
Our school community strives to uphold our three school rules: be a learner, be respectful, and be safe. These are taught and held in high esteem by students, staff and parents.
At Pakenham Hills Primary School our motto is ‘Life is for Learning’ and we have a school community which loves to learn. We create a safe, positive and supportive learning environment and provide an extensive curriculum in which every child is given the opportunity to learn and experience success. Our focus provides a personalised learning approach enhanced by an extensive curriculum. We foster a belief that each child should be given the opportunity to experience social, emotional and academic excellence.
We have taken advantage of our beautiful location at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, and students enjoy park-like surroundings with many outdoor play areas, gardens and updated music, science and sporting facilities.
Our teachers are a professional, innovative, enthusiastic and caring team who encourage parents to become involved in the educational experience of their children and contribute to the Pakenham Hills school community.
We invite you to give your child the best education possible by joining our school.
