Our Philosophy


Heidelberg Primary School’s vision is to empower our students to be life-long learners who build authentic connections with their local and global communities.


Heidelberg Primary School’s mission is to develop students to be curious and creative thinkers in an inclusive and engaging environment.


Our school’s objectives are considered as part of the 4 yearly strategic planning process and reflected in the goals listed in our current School Strategic Plan (SSP). We also develop an Annual Implementation Plan to operationalise the goals and key improvement strategies contained in our SSP.
