Our Vision

To create an environment and culture where being the best you can be is our norm.

Here at Huapai District School we are seeking to develop children who are confident and self assured in purpose, who carry a voice of positive influence and consistently deliver at their best.

Principal’s Welcome

Huapai is known for its fruit. I have always believed you can judge a tree by its fruit. I’d like to believe, the fruit of what we desire to see in thinking, in learning and in character is evident in the quality and depth of our children.

Our Learning

We see our school as a learning community. Our approach will be school wide whilst providing and enabling high levels of autonomy for staff to build on the interests and needs of their children.

Enrolment Information

We are a zoned school and all students who live within the school zone are automatically accepted following proof of address provided to the office.
