Welcome to Hawkesbury Independent School

Hawkesbury Independent School is a small co-educational school for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. It is situated at Kurrajong and offers a positive alternative for children and parents in the Hawkesbury area. Our school is based on a strong sense of community. We have developed a supportive and nurturing atmosphere where all children look out for each other and where parents are invited to be part of the life of the school. Active learning describes our school activities, both inside and outside the classroom. While the learning program is very structured and covers all the requirements of the New South Wales curriculum, the activities are stimulating, ‘hands-on’ and active.

As a small primary school, Hawkesbury Independent School encourages the development of strong caring relationships between children, teachers and parents. This is vital to ensure that school is an enjoyable and worthwhile experience for all involved.

This website is designed to acquaint you with our school and to answer questions you may have about the policies and practices within the school.
