Our school has strong community links that enhance learning opportunities across the curriculum. We work to utilize the strengths of our staff and community in order to tailor learning programmes that cater for the multicultural backgrounds of our students. These quality linkages form the basis of our home-school partnership approach to school development.
We celebrate success and strive to provide a positive and safe learning environment. Our school is a focal point in our local community and we encourage feedback, interaction and mutual support as part of our consultation and future development process.
Quality learning and teaching are paramount in our learning institution. We have developed and will continue to develop robust academic programmes that promote thinking, problem solving, exploration and interaction. These programmes are assisted by structured assessment and data gathering to ensure successful learning outcomes and suitability for our learners.
Our students are encouraged to make choices that contribute to a better quality of life through well-being in physical, emotional, spiritual and social health. We reinforce these qualities through examples of positive leadership and the use of role models. Our school values and code of conduct is clearly defined in the ‘Henderson South School Way.’ Our school motto, ‘Caring, Sharing and Learning,’ will underpin our school values and reinforce them.
Our aim is to prepare students for a lifetime of learning and change as a 21st Century Learner. We need to ensure they have the skills to progress to higher learning and to adapt in fast-paced, information based, global community. Our micro learning environment needs to be a reflection of the macro learning environment of our nation and beyond.
