Hill­side stu­dents con­tinue to ex­cel! Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Touch Foot­ball Knock­out team on win­ning their first round game against La Per­ouse Pub­lic School. Both teams dis­played great sports­man­ship and per­se­ver­ance Hill­side team will now be trav­el­ling to Yan­derra for their next game. We know they will con­tinue to rep­re­sent Hill­side with pride. It was won­der­ful to be sup­ported on the day by our ded­i­cated par­ents and grand­par­ents. We are so for­tu­nate to have such a sup­port­ive school com­mu­nity.

Hill­side was an­nounced as Cham­pion School at the re­cent Beecroft Zone Cross Coun­try. What a won­der­ful achieve­ment for all our stu­dents. This fol­lows the school be­ing Cham­pion School at the Zone Swim­ming Car­ni­val in Term 1. Con­grat­u­la­tions must go to Madi­son in Year 5 for suc­cess­fully be­ing se­lected in the com­bined Beecroft/Ryde girls Touch Foot­ball team. She dis­played great skill and sports­man­ship at the re­cent North Syd­ney Area Tri­als, but was not cho­sen for the team. Ev­ery stu­dent has so many sport­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties at Hill­side.

The se­nior stu­dents have been hon­ing their prob­lem solv­ing skills and a em­brac­ing the chal­lenge of par­tic­i­pat­ing in the APSMO (Aus­tralian Pri­mary Schools Maths Olympiad) com­pe­ti­tion. This year there has been a fo­cus on strength­en­ing stu­dents’ writ­ing. All stu­dents par­tic­i­pate in many writ­ing ac­tiv­i­ties each week. They are look­ing for­ward to their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the writ­ers’ work­shop, early next term, with the Aus­tralian au­thor Dr Cameron Stelzer.

The school is cur­rently con­vert­ing one of its class­rooms into a ded­i­cated STEAM (Science, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing, Art and Math­e­mat­ics) and Maker Space. The room will be utilised by all stu­dents when par­tic­i­pat­ing in a va­ri­ety of learn­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. It will be a won­der­ful ad­di­tion to the great fa­cil­i­ties at Hill­side.

Hill­side is cur­rently tak­ing Kinder­garten En­rol­ments for 2019. Please visit our awe­some school and find out why your child will flour­ish in our small school en­vi­ron­ment. Please con­tact the school of­fice on 9652 1459. Au­gust 20th
