The Foundation Tree was planted on 31 May 1986 by the founders of Hilllbrook on the day the school opened for Enrolments. It stayed there until the early 90's when it was moved to the location it would stay for the next 27 years.
On 12 December, a crew of arborists carefully removed The Foundation Tree and moved it to a temporary home where it is currently flourishing.
It will be relocated to the front of the school again when the new buildings are complete.
You can see how the move went here.

We are pleased to announce plans for Hillbrook 2020 that will support the future growth and development of our school.
In consultation with BSPN Architecture, the School will embark on an exciting stage of growth with plans for new learning facilities and significantly more green space for our students and School community to enjoy.
Among the key features of the 2019 build will be a new Science and English block that will accommodate seven state-of-the-art Science laboratories and breakout spaces, new English classrooms and a new Cafeteria with a Café area plus extra ammenities. There will also be a library extension with a small auditorium. A new administration centre will create a warm and welcoming entry to our school. We will also increase the green space in our internal courtyard for the students and School community events.
It is anticipated the building works will start after school concludes in Term 4, 2018 and be ready for the start of 2020.
We are looking forward to this next Hillbrook stage, and will be keeping our School community well informed throughout the process.
