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.
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.
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.
This is a chance to say hello, drop off your stationery, familiarise yourselves with the classroom, perhaps have catch up with some familiar faces and to share any information needed. Our school office will also be open at this time.
School will end at approximately 12:30pm today, at the conclusion of the Year 8 Assembly.
Please bring cash for the year 5&6 market.
Today, Friday 02 December we have a Choose Your Charity Mufti Day in support of three amazing charities; Breast Cancer Foundation, Junior Surf Lifesaving and Gumboot Day.
YOU get to choose which of these charities you would like to support on the day. Just come dressed in your favourite or colour-themed clothes to show your support and bring along a gold coin donation to pop into our triple charity box. It’ll be great!
Thank you for your continue patience. A police office has just been onsite to advise us that both dogs have been detained.
We will be releasing your children now.
One of the the dogs was located in the Triangle area and the other on Trigg road beside the school.
We sincerely thank you for your co-operation and patience while this matter was dealt with.

Here we are again!
This time it’s dogs frightened by the storm who are roaming and actively attacking people on both Trigg and Station Roads.
As advised by police, we have placed the school into an informal lockdown.
All students are safe inside their classrooms with their teachers.
Animal control and police are actively working to detain the dogs.
No student will be leaving the grounds until we have been advised by police that it is safe to do so.
For your own safety, please stay in your cars and do not walk on to school grounds.
If this situation is not resolved by 3pm, all students will remain inside the classroom with their teachers and we will advise you when they have been released.
Thank you for your co-operation.
