Our Learning

Learning at HVS

Henderson Valley School is a learning community with a clear and determined focus on raising student achievement.   We teach all 7 learning areas of the New Zealand Curriculum - English, Maths and Statistics, Science, Social Studies, Health and PE, The Arts, and Technology.

Our School Vision is: Curious, Creative, Connected, Successful Learners

For learners to be successful research shows that students/ākonga need to be able to talk about their learning. Being able to answer the following questions is central to successful learning:

Being successful is not the same as being right or wrong - it is about understanding your learning and knowing what you need to do next; it is about being able to look at what you are doing and see if it meets the criteria. Our ākonga are becoming more successful at this every day.
