Our School and Community

Hyden Primary School, established in 1934, is at the heart of our proud town. Our school has a very stable cohort of students, the majority of whom belong to farming families, or to families working in allied agricultural services.

Staff are highly motivated to work collaboratively and use evidence to examine the impact of their teaching on student progress and achievement. They are extremely supportive of our school and community and know each student in many capacities. Hyden PS is a vibrant, culturally responsive community where there is a strong sense of belonging and connection. We are partnered by a dynamic School Board and P&C Association, being actively involved in school decision making processes. By working together, our community fosters a collective sense of responsibility to explore every possible avenue for a great education and to ensure that each student has every opportunity to achieve personal excellence in all facets of life.
