Hamley Bridge Primary School, situated in the Gilbert Valley, recently celebrated 125 years of public education with an ethos of;
'Learning for Life with Respect and Trust'.
The school has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy with a recently- appointed literacy coach employed to support student learning.
Students engage in an environmental studies program that focuses on recycle/re-use, gardening, water care and climate change.
Older students participate in the 'Water Watch' program.
Opportunities exist for individual students to extend their interests in activities such as choir, sport, art and poetry. Also, students are able to develop their leadership skills with 'Student Voice' committees operating in the areas of community, fundraising, sports and public speaking.
