ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
At Harvest Home Primary School, the students are at the centre and purpose of all that we do. We prepare
students to pursue their goals, interests and aspirations. All teachers and support staff work to provide a teaching
pedagogy reflective of 21st Century designs focussed on rich environments and personalised learning for all
students. Teachers and students will work collaboratively in Learning Communities, to create flexible teaching
options to cater for the individual needs of all students. We commit to having a shared responsibility of the
success, well-being and safety of all students.
To establish a high performing school community that embraces innovation, inclusivity, collaboration and respect.
The school has been designed with the local community in mind and will be a gathering place for local families and residents to enjoy community, arts, sports and recreation programs.
Facilities will include:
• an Early Learning Centre run by the YMCA that will facilitate transitions between early childhood learning to primary education
• an additional multi-purpose space that will be used by the school during school hours and will be used by the YMCA out of school hours to provide a range of community services and programs
• a shared oval with City of Whittlesea Council to maximise space for students, including an amphitheatre and outdoor stage
• an expanded gymnasium built to Netball Victoria standards
• embedded environmental sustainability education via the CERES ResourceSmart Schools program initiative
• additional classrooms for students in this high growth area
• conference and meeting rooms for local community use.
Our school logo represents Community and Collaboration. The inner circle represents the world, we aim to develop ‘global citizens’, the middle white circle represents the school, all who will work together. The outer circle represents the students, parents and community working together. The outer light blue design signifies Edgar’s Creek that runs along the boundary of the school and is significant to the Epping area.
