Grow to Know

Established in 1945, Hazelbrook Public School is situated in a world heritage area of the Greater Blue Mountains, 93 kilometres west of Sydney. It caters for kindergarten up until Year 6 where enrolment is currently 355 students.

The school delivers dynamic learning opportunities for each and every student in an inclusive environment where dedicated art programs, positive behaviour for learning, sport, band, choir, chess, coding, STEAM, debating and dance enrich and extend physical, creative and critical thinking and wellbeing. The school motto is “Grow to Know” where high achievement and engagement in learning is promoted and students are encouraged to be ‘respectful, responsible learners’.

The students at the school actively contribute to the success of the Festival in a variety of ways that encourage student connection with the fundraiser and help to keep the event family-friendly.

A poster art competition is open to all Hazelbrook Public School students, with the winning entry’s artwork adapted to become the official Festival poster that promotes the event across the Mountains.

Throughout Term 2 and 3, each class works on a range of art projects that form the objects featured in the Festival’s Scavenger Hunt, creating an enticing garden trail activity for young visitors.

Year 5 and 6 students also help with building awareness of the Festival by being involved in videos to promote the Festival. 

Many of the students are also present across the two weekends, helping out their parents who volunteer at garden gates.
