Management Team


Departmental regulations require that the Huonville High School office is notified of student absence for all grade groups from Year 7 to 12 inclusive. Adult students are also required to notify the office of any absence. For additional information including what is an authorised or unauthorised absence,  please see: Authorised Absences in Tasmanian Government Schools


Contacting the school:

Parents and carers are encouraged to call the school to make an appointment to see teachers if they have concerns about their child. Teachers are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays after school for meetings. Other times may be negotiated with individual teachers.
Round table meetings with all your child's teachers can be arranged by the Grade AST or Leader.
Home Room teachers can also collect information e.g. a 'snapshot' from teachers and report back.
Parents and carers are always welcome at HHS.


Huonville High School is pleased to announce an upgrade to our school communication services. News, Events, Notices and general messages will now be sent using the School Star app.
