At Red Hill Consolidated School, our educational thinking is based on a firm belief that our students should be provided with every opportunity to develop the necessary skills to allow them to be active participants in a global community. We value creativity, as it is a strong part of the school’s fabric and we will continue to provide opportunities for students to develop their creative capacity and importantly to recognise that creativity exists in all elements of life and learning.
Our dedicated Red Hill Consolidated staff have a passionate commitment to developing high quality literacy and numeracy skills for all students, which is also supported by a talented support team. Staff build respectful and caring relationships with their students and families, and invite open communication and feedback.
In addition to the comprehensive curriculum offered to students by their class teachers, students from Foundation to Year 6 also attend 5 specialist subjects, Art, Music, Science, LOTE Japanese and Physical Education. Specialist subjects provide extensive diversity to the curriculum allowing students to experience different learning environments and to explore subjects that broaden their understandings.
At present RHCS has articulated values of respect, responsibility, resilience, and empathy. These values are consistently highlighted, rewarded and celebrated when demonstrated by our students. We are very proud of our students, who are supportive of one another and respectful to teachers and all visitors to our school.
Our school location could best be described as rural, with large picturesque grounds, generous outdoor playing spaces, a heated swimming pool and beautiful surrounds. We are proud of the strong environmental focus we exhibit within the community and how this also translates in the classroom with our students. We have a magnificent school garden that is currently being developed. When completed it will be utilised as a teaching centre for students to access and also care for.
There has always been a strong relationship between the school, its students and the community. This relationship is clearly demonstrated by the enthusiastic, ongoing support from our parent body. We have a high performing hands-on School Council, a large number of classroom helpers and huge parental support with events such as Art Red Hill, Country Fair, Canteen, Sports Days, Camps, Excursions, Concerts, Productions and Swimming.
Red Hill Consolidated School is an excellent environment for young people to strive for and hold to the best!
