Our school motto 'Growing with Wisdom' embraces our belief that we provide opportunities for all students to develop wisdom in cognitive abilities and skills to achieve their full potential and to develop their social, physical and creative skills and abilities.
HPS has grown into a school which has clearly established beliefs about teaching and learning. Our aim is to exceed student potential through a focus on quality differentiation and social and emotional well-being of students. Our belief statement promotes excellence in teaching and learning, strong community partnerships within a supportive school environment.
Effective staff leadership for the present and the future ensures growth is sustained, maintained and evolving. The leadership team supports current practices, keeps abreast of future directions in education and provides the catalyst for ensuring the school adapts to meet the ever-changing needs of today's education priorities. Our leadership structure also supports the growth of future leaders through employing a leadership model that recognises teachers as instructional leaders in their classrooms and future instructional leaders in schools.
Strong, well established partnerships with our local community and the broader communities enables us to promote and sustain effective networks. We welcome the input of knowledge and skills by encouraging different perspectives and embracing change to ensure that we not only grow as individuals but also as a whole-school community.
