HILLCREST Primary welcomes Mr Raj Kemraj as their new principal.
Mr Kemraj has a long history with Hillcrest Primary starting at the school in 1999 as a Grade 7 teacher later moving into the position of head of department. He later became the deputy principal where he remained for six years.

Mr Kemraj’s passion was teaching and his love for education led him straight into the schooling environment. Here he is able to remain motivated and passionate. He later completed a Honours degree in IT.
Mr Kemraj’s goal is to keep the school “tech savvy”. He has already placed WiFi hot spots throughout the school with internet access in every classroom and hopes to be able to grow the use of technology over the coming years.

Mr Kemraj was the only male teacher at Hillcrest Primary when appointed and he has grown with his loyal staff of some of whom have been at Hillcrest Primary for over 35 years.

Hillcrest Primary is a strong school within the upper Highway area. It allows the staff and children to have the freedom to be themselves and express exactly who they are. There is a strong sense of family and belonging. Academics is a huge focus and priority and the school has a strong focus on the basic foundations.

Hillcrest Primary also has an efficient cultural and sporting unit where they welcomed their new sports director who will be focusing on the growth of the unit.

The school also places huge focus on the community drives and assists wherever they can.
They have the “Kids Community” focus, driven by Cath Malcolm-Smith. This drive is there to provide meals to children who are unable to have a meal before school or during the day.
Mr Kemraj and Mrs Malcolm-Smith are extremely grateful to the local business supporters and sponsors who choose to support this initiative.
