At Hendra State School we pride ourselves on providing quality education in a multi-age setting for students from Prep to Year Six. Our school community is dedicated towards achieving excellent results for our students and school. Teaching and learning encompasses the eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Technology, Health and Physical Education, The Arts and French. Students are supported to reach and surpass school learning benchmarks through data informed teaching and learning inquiry cycles.
We believe that our school community has a shared responsibility to maintain strong, positive relationships to support academically and socially competent students who are lifelong learners and custodians of the environment. We hold high expectations for our students both in their school work and behaviour through our Positive Climate for Learning. These expectations are complemented by our school rules: Be safe, Be responsible, Be respectful and Be a proud learner. We call these 'The Hendra Way'.
We are a proud Tangalooma EcoMarines school and take action to protect our environment. We reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose and embed the cross curriculum priority of Sustainability in our daily routines. We have a well-established equestrian program for all students and our two house teams, The Kangaroos and The Emus, engage in athletics, cross country and spelling bee competitions throughout the year.
Our school is supported by volunteers through our active Parent and Citizens Association who provide our school with generous financial contributions that benefit all students and staff at our school.
Hendra State School, established in 1864, is the oldest school in the district. We continue positive partnerships with our families and community to benefit our students and nurture them as they strive to their potential.
