H.P.S 150 Year Celebration

Hastings Primary School brought together numerous community organisations and businesses to celebrate its 150th year of education.

After more than two years interrupted by COVID restrictions, students, families and staff, both current and past took advantage of the opportunity to come together on Saturday 26th March 2022 and enjoy the nostalgia and fun.

Hastings Primary School was established formally in 1872, aligning with the Victorian Government Education Act of the same year.

After an official opening ceremony, many people participated in the historical landmarks tour and enjoyed the extensive historical museum, student photos through the years and the gallery of current students’ work.

Displays also included the contents of time capsules buried in 1985 for Victoria’s 150 Year Celebration. Rolling media presentations from past student interviews and current students sharing their thoughts and experiences about school life were available on big screens to view throughout the day.

The published 150th celebration booklet containing the school’s historical timeline can still be obtained from the school whilst stocks last.
