Hillcrest Primary School


Our Media Arts program promotes expression through storytelling and creativity that is engaging, collaborative and innovative. Using the latest digital technologies, students master the craft of filming and editing, allowing them to explore their own ideas through Media Arts.


Our school programs are unique to Hillcrest. The programs we use have been designed to support the individual needs of each child, celebrate their strengths and assist them to be the best version of themselves they can be.
