This dynamic learning community is nestled in wonderful tree filled surroundings. 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 and learn every day in every way.

Our school has mainstream classes from Preschool to Year 6. Our school hosts the Southside Primary Introductory English Centre - we continually welcome families who newly arrive in Canberra from all over the world. Needless to say, the high multicultural presence in our school demonstrates the wide world around us and we thrive in an inclusive environment. Our school has a Learning Support Unit-Autism – for those students living with Autism. I am proud to say, our students value diversity, promote healthy relationships and lead with confidence.
