Huonville Primary School
Huonville Area School opened in 1940 and catered for children from Kindergarten to about year 9 or 10. In 1957 the Area School was split into the Huonville High and Huonville Primary Schools each with its own Principal. Secondary school students from a wide area were transported to the high school for a broader curriculum which included languages and commercial subjects. A new site was developed for Huonville Primary students. The Huonville Infant Department remained in the older buildings further along Wilmot Road until redevelopment brought the two sectors together in 1995.
The school is now situated adjacent to its associated secondary school and borders extensive outdoor community recreational facilities. The majority of students travel to and from school by bus. The socially diverse background of the students enriches the culture of the school. Currently the student enrolment is around 430 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Approximately 50 of our students are of Aboriginal background. All students are supported to achieve their potential through many supplementary and enrichment programs.
