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.
