Hillcrest Primary School was founded in 1950 and is prominently situated on the crest of a hill overlooking the City of Bayswater.
Tracing its history to before establishment the local Wadjuk people used the distinctive bush setting and sweeping views as a gathering place to share food and impart the wisdom and knowledge of crafting tools, spears and cooking implements.
This relationship with Noongar Land is recognised in the naming of several key buildings. The most notable eing the new administration opened in 2016 which is proudly inscribed with the words ‘Malya-Ba Mia’ signifying a ‘Place of Learning’.
