Learning and Growing Together
Learning and Growing Together.
Heywood Consolidated School offers an inclusive learning environment focussed on developing the minds and values of our next generation of local citizens.
Apart from a structured academic learning program we emphasise the development of core values such as respect, persistence and resilience. This is achieved through mindfulness, circle time, interest clubs, and a variety of team based initiatives.
Teaching and Learning is at the centre of all that we do.
We have an inquiry approach to learning across all grades where the students are questioning, investigating and presenting their learning. We use IT to support innovative programs specifically directed at engaging students in literacy and numeracy. Strong musical and sporting programs highlight the emphasis on the development of the whole child – academically, physically, socially and emotionally.
Strong community spirit and a proactive School Council and Parents & Friends Club ensure the best possible learning environment for our children.
Set just 1km from the centre of Heywood, the school has spacious grounds maximising opportunities for students to engage in a range of outdoor activities at recess and lunch. A football oval, running track, adventure playground and sandpits provide plentiful spaces for to engage children in their breaks. In addition to the two classroom wings, there is a sports stadium and a multi-purpose room housing the art room, assembly area and kitchen – this is known as the Kareeta Building.
