Helena Valley Primary School is an Independent Public School that caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Situated in the foothills of the Darling Range, our school provides dynamic and engaging educational opportunities that inspire children to become excellent achievers and responsible, positive citizens.

Staff at Helena Valley Primary School are dedicated, experienced and collaborative. They focus on student improvement through the use of evidence-based, reflective practices and a targeted approach towards teaching. Curriculum implementation and innovation is supported by partnerships with schools in the Hills Education Community. Several teachers share their expertise through leadership roles within the school.

Students at Helena Valley Primary School are recognised for their positive attitude towards learning and respect for peers. The school offers specialist programs in the areas of music, art, Italian and physical education. Children are offered educational opportunities to develop their individual skills and knowledge through early identification. Children who may be identified as being 'at risk' educationally are overseen through a case management approach working in partnership between the school, staff and family.

Excelling students are identified and managed at a classroom level. They can also be nominated for Gifted and Talented Programs (PEAC and Kalamunda Extension Program) and School of Instrumental Music programs. Opportunities to participate in a variety of supplementary programs including interschool sport, science, spelling, public speaking and the HEC Arts Festival are also offered at our school.

Helena Valley Primary School staff work with children and families to develop social and emotional success, alongside academic success. The school motto 'Help Each Other' is underpinned with the core values - excellence, responsibility and citizenship, which are explicit in all that we do at Helena Valley Primary School. Our school operates under a set of whole-school expectations designed to encourage children to develop themselves as a learner and a team member. We believe every day counts, and that attending school every day helps students build social and emotional skills such as communication, team work and resilience.

Our school consistently receives positive feedback from families reflecting the community spirit at Helena Valley Primary School.
