2014 is a very exciting year for all of us at Hughes Primary School!  We are turning 50! We feel extremely lucky to benefit this year from 18 months of refurbishment, and proudly opened our doors to new vibrant team-teaching learning spaces. New bold colours are adorning the walls of our new classrooms to represent colours identified in our local flora and fauna – allowing us to celebrate in the natural beauty that surrounds Canberra and the ACT.

This dynamic learning community is nestled in wonderful tree filled surroundings. I feel it is a privilege to lead Hughes Primary School – a place where children feel valued , engaged and nurtured, where staff provide exemplary teaching and consistent care for students, where parents are acknowledged as powerful partners--- with all of us striving to enjoy every day in every way.
