Community

When families talk about the many benefits of sending their children to Box Hill North Primary they always mention the strong sense of community and the many active parents and carers.  Teachers, parents and carers work together to ensure the children receive the best possible environment for learning and community.

Beginning in 2020, there will be a Community Get together held each term on a Sunday for present and past families to meet and have dinner or catch up in an informal way. The school’s wood fired oven will be lit and families can bring their dinner down to cook if they wish, then enjoy time with past friends and community members.

As well as this there are many opportunity for the community to meet and enjoy activities, for example:

  • Kinder and Prep Family Night
  • Mother’s Day
  • Father’s Day
  • Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day
  • Musical Soiree event
  • School Carol’s night
  • Graduation night
  • School Fair
  • School Concert
  • The Arts Festival
  • Whole school Sports Day
  • Fun Run
  • Bush Dance
  • Trivia Night
  • Science Night

There are many events we hold which brings us together to celebrate our wonderful community.

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.

We run a progressive and innovative technology program to produce true 21st Century Citizens. Students in Prep enjoy using iPads and students in the senior school will be instructed with Ultrabooks as a part of our 1-to-1 program.
