A Caring Environment
At Hurstville Adventist School we have created an environment in which your child can feel safe, valued and supported, an environment which is inclusive and tolerant.
The foundation of our approach to educating your child is our secure and nurturing school environment. We create this environment through appreciation for individual needs, respect for the children in our care and support for their values and opinions.
Through this approach your child will reach their full potential whilst developing self-esteem and an appreciation for the needs of others.
To ensure a nurturing and caring school environment for your child, Hurstville Adventist School builds its foundations on the following principles:
Our pastoral care program, Christian counseling, school chaplains and mentoring programs offer many avenues to ensure that your child is emotionally supported in all aspects of school life. Details of our Chaplaincy Program are in the PDF at the bottom of this page.
At Hurstville Adventist School we welcome the support and involvement of parents within the school. We encourage parents to become part of the school community in activities such as reading groups, excursions and covering books, further boosting support for your child.
Early in the year we hold an information night when parents can come and meet their child's teacher. Our parent/teacher nights that are held twice a year are a great opportunity for parents to talk to the teacher about their child's progress.
We also have a multicultural day when we celebrate all of the different cultures in our school. The children can dress up in traditional costumes and sample food from the different cultures.
Safety and convenience
The safety of your child is paramount at Hurstville Adventist School. Our school owns and operates several bus services for convenient, safe travel.
There is a teacher on duty for early supervision from 8:00 am until school starts and an after school care program is in place.
Our enviable student-teacher ratios allow our teachers to get to know your child as an individual. Our team combines the enthusiasm of youth with dedication and experience to provide a well-rounded and targeted approach to teaching your child.
Because of our school size each teacher monitors each child and gets to know their personality, growth and development needs.
