Students are provided with and actively encouraged to participate in a wide variety of quality academic, cultural, leadership, environmental and sporting programs. At Hinton Public School we believe the children are part of an extended family and learn and grow in a peaceful, caring atmosphere. We value the contribution everyone makes through our school motto Every Little One Counts. We believe in preparing our students for the challenges that life presents. In order to achieve this, students not only fully engage in the curriculum, but they learn lifelong skills such as being empowered, creative and critical thinkers who have a curiosity to their learning and are prepared to be productive citizens in their ever changing world. Hinton Public School has a rich, deep and proud history. We encourage our students to become both active and pro-active members of the community by developing responsibility and respect towards themselves and others. We encourage students to reach their full potential, be innovative, resilient and independent learners while remaining empathetic and compassionate community members who are able to positively solve conflict using a variety of negotiation skills. Our Future Focused vision is for our students to be - successful learners - confident, creative and empathetic individuals - active and informed citizens. Hinton Public School proudly belongs to the Maitland Learning Communities.
