“High standards of, Outstanding, Persistent Excellence.” P6 / 2015 student’s HOPE for SHPS

Hello and Welcome to our school website!

St Hilda's Primary School (SHPS), established in 1934, has had a long history since Archdeacon Graham White founded the school on the basis of exposing more children to education so that they might have a brighter future ahead.

At SHPS, the emphasis is placed on developing holistic education where students learn to be confident, articulate, innovative and caring. Every Hildan is encouraged to excel in his or her studies as well as having an excellent moral standing within the society of whatever country they may finally serve in.

Throughout the 6 years of their primary education in SHPS, all our students will have 21st century learning experiences in and beyond school that they need for success. St Hilda’s believes that a strong foundation for success is built upon learning that happens in and out of school.

 However, we are aware that each child that enters the gates of SHPS is unique in his or her own way. Hence, much of the curriculum is also directed toward holistic development where students are encouraged to further both their studies as well as other interests in sports, games or the arts. Hildans are often complimented on their skills in successfully managing both work and play, which they do to the best of their abilities.

 The Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) are used as platforms to inculcate values such as self-discipline, perseverance, determination and teamwork. With the numerous programmes a child can participate in, it is not surprising, therefore, the number of students taking part in CCAs is extremely high. CCAs in SHPS are extremely diverse and they range from sports to the performing arts. This is the reason why many

Hildans develop a niche in the areas that hold interest for them, which further results in excellent all-round development for the child.

 Our staff has an excellent relationship with their students as well. Teachers often go the extra mile just for their students, ensuring that they understand whatever is taught in class. In this manner, the teacher-student relationship is built on an extremely firm foundation that supports the well-being of each Hildan.

 An African proverb states that it takes an entire village to raise a child, and it is our wish that together with our staff, parents, other stakeholders and the community, YOUR child be raised in a manner fitting for a king.

Together with our partners in education, we are willing to do what it takes to ensure that a child who attends St Hilda's grows up in a God fearing, caring and supportive environment for his/her well-being as well as they being built in their knowledge and skills for success in this century and beyond. 

 Our vision, thus, is to be a dynamic learning community that nurtures loyal citizens with global outlook and Godly character, and this is what we can and will do for any child that is in St Hilda's Primary School.
