A very warm welcome to all visitors to our site.

Henderson Primary School (HPS) is a medium sized kura/school in which children can feel part of a whānau/family.  We have a very skilled and passionate kaimahi/staff who take pride in providing quality learning experiences for tamariki/children. At HPS we acknowledge…

I te tuapapa te kākano tahi – At the beginning existed one culture

He taonga te kākano rua – We must treasure the bicultural nature of NZ

Me awhi te kākano maha – We must embrace the multicultural nature of our community

Our programmes emphasize the development of strong literacy and numeracy skills, emotional development and higher-order thinking skills.  Exploration, collaboration and cooperative learning are encouraged to expose children to a range of learning approaches.  We teach an integrated curriculum in which learning is based around authentic and real world topics.

It is a privilege to be involved in a successful school which encourages partnership in learning; has high expectations for childrens achievement and behaviour; is staffed by dedicated and resourceful teachers and support staff; and is supported by a capable Board of Trustees.

I value the relationship our school develops with its community and look forward to your involvement with our school.
