Who we are...

Our School Mission Statement

Creating personalised learning pathways to success for all

Our School Vision

Inspired Learners, collaboratively creating sustainable futures

Our vision was developed by our establishment Board of Trustees and senior leadership team and was based on the feedback we received from community consultation at the time.

Each year we revisit our vision with our learners to explore elements of the model and ensure it aligns with our strategic direction.

This vision guides all learning and weaves through the engagements, ethos and being of our school.

Our Motto:

Tikaranga ~ Weaving the right path

Our motto was gifted to us by local iwi before our school opened in 2012. At HPS we live by our school motto - Tikaranga - weaving the right path. Our school rule is to ‘do the right thing’

The design details:

Awhi - guiding and supporting relationships of our community form the outer circle which envelopes our learning

Ako - weaving together our personal baskets of knowledge

the three strands of our kete are:

Creative (auaha)

Collaborative (ngātahi)

Agile learning (ngāwari)

Mana - the central koru shape represents our personal integrity (mana) including our values, principles and beliefs.
