Hackham East Primary School is located in the metropolitan area 30km south of Adelaide between the Southern Beaches and Southern Vales. The school opened in 1973. It has a strong teaching focus on wellbeing, literacy, numeracy, and digital technologies.
We have developed a strong reputation within the community as a school that focuses on the social and emotional needs of all students. Using the “Play is the Way” (PITW) philosophy our aim is to raise children considerate of themselves, others and the world in which they live, with sound reasons for the things they say and do. Central to our goal is the development of positive interpersonal skills, self-control, self-motivation and reflective thinking by raising empathy levels and providing opportunities to enact virtuous behaviour and tolerance towards others.
Hackham East Primary School is committed to developing Behaviour Education and Self-Management (BESM). We embrace a values based approach to education and this underpins our culture. We see BESM as a responsibility of the entire school community. Students, parents and teachers need to have a clear understanding of what is expected in regards to how we treat each other, to ensure a welcoming learning environment that is supportive and safe and is conducive to learning.
At Hackham East PS we believe it is the quality of the teacher that is the critical factor in ensuring positive outcomes for all students. Teachers at Hackham East PS are skilled in developing strong working relationships with students and parents. It is the strength of these relationships that give students the confidence to work effectively with others to achieve their personal best.
We believe all students can achieve success. Our job is to ensure every student has the opportunity to do so. The most effective way to achieve this is to develop each student’s social and emotional capabilities. We therefore do not use rewards, praise or punishments to manipulate students. In line with the PITW philosophy we want students to leave Hackham East PS as self-motivated learners who do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.
Steeped in history, Hackham East Primary School is one of the popular school in the Hackham area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
