Principal's Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to share the unique experience we have at Halfway Bush School. We are a smaller school dedicated to ensuring every child learns to communicate, gets a positive learning experience and feels a sense of belonging and security to be themselves and flourish. 


We at Halfway Bush, take great pride in the work we do and the progress we see of individual children. We believe that we open doors and support children to be strong independent communicators and learners.


Our children benefit from being part of a smaller school. The teacher /student ratio is key to our success.

We offer a way to ensure they are heard and can give their valued voice and opinion by ‘Reaching new heights’ together
