News from HWPS
Today, at our end of year assembly, we said a final goodbye to our Grade 6 students and wished them good luck for the future. I would like to acknowledge this outstanding and talented group of young people who have actively contributed to our school community as leaders and role models this year. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow and learn over their time at primary school.
Both staff and parents are certainly very proud of what they have achieved both as individuals and as the 2018 graduating group.

School Captains: Jasmine & Ted
Vice School Captains: Caitlin & Flynn
