About our school

Hayes Park Public School serves a growing community in suburban Dapto on the western foreshores of Lake Illawarra. The school's enrolment has been steadily increasing and is just above 600 students. Our students are placed in 26 mainstream classes, and an Autism/IO support class. Our students reflect a changing demographic with 9% coming from an NESB and 10% identifying as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. 

The culture and climate of the school is characterised by a strong sense of pride, open communication, and a strong commitment to working as a supportive, cohesive team. This culture and climate is reflected in the school's statement of purpose: Based on the premise that all children can learn, we as a school community at Hayes Park Public School, will provide a motivating, caring learning environment which strives to cater for the needs of all students. Students are provided with the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to become life long learners empowered to manage change. All students are encouraged to strive for personal excellence. 

An 'Acknowledgement of Country' is a way that all people can show respect for Aboriginal culture and heritage and the ongoing relationship the traditional owners have with their land.

Both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people can perform 'Acknowledgement of Country'. It is a demonstration of respect dedicated to the traditional custodians of the land (or sea) where the event, meeting, school function or conference takes place.
