EAST Hamilton Hill Primary School’s status as an exemplary independent public school was solidified recently with a special visitor.

Department of Education director-general Sharyn O’Neill visited the school to congratulate it on its recognition and applauding its consistent high teaching standards, focus on inclusion and strong relationship with the local community.

Principal Danielle Roache said it was a big accolade, with only a handful of schools receiving the recognition last year.

“This is a great achievement for all school community members and is indicative of the input from teachers, non-teaching staff, the board, the P&C and families,” she said.

“Not many schools are recognised in this way and it is a real testament to our ongoing pursuit of a rounded education.”

She said it capped off a great trifecta for the school, which was named a finalist in the WA Primary School of the Year award in 2015 and former principal Geoff Miller was named a finalist in the WA Principal of the Year award in 2014.
