Our staff are committed to building positive relationships, with the motivation to pursue excellence. Our dedicated and professional teachers maintain an environment which supports each child every day to achieve their personal best. As a collective, teachers look to employ evidence-based strategies to maximise the effect they have on student learning. In addition, we constantly aim to deliver the highest standards of pastoral care and support services to enable all students to thrive.

Mount Hawthorn PS embraces all members of our community and strives to maintain a nurturing and welcoming environment that promotes community partnerships. Our parents, School Board and P&C are integral to our school community, and together we are committed to providing the best for our students.

Our music program is recognised as Western Australia's largest and most accomplished program in a public primary school. Specialist teachers from Instrumental Music School Services complement our music program for children in Years 3 to 6 in string, brass, woodwind and percussion. Students are also offered the opportunity to become members of our school's band, orchestra and choir, and attend an annual residential camp as an immersive experience to build skills and connection with other players. In addition, the school is proud to have a distinctive breadth of offerings that includes visual art, sport, STEM and Aboriginal cultural perspectives.
