"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow" - Anthony J. D'Angelo
Research tell us that schools are one of the few remaining established social structures in our local communities accessed by all families. Communities are built on a sense of belonging. A sense of community is strongly fostered in children through attendance at their local school. We aim to nurture that sense of belonging in all students and their families. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about our school and learning community.
Henry Kendall High School offers a comprehensive range of contemporary educational experiences allowing students to be exposed to a wide range of engaging opportunities and to focus on curriculum areas they wish to pursue. We acknowledge the unique qualities of all students and provides a range of learning experiences which challenge all interests and abilities.
Our school's mission statement is: "Developing confident responsible citizens who strive for excellence." We aim to develop the best in each student, and to draw out their talents and interests so that they are well placed to pursue their career options.
Our school has three areas as its strategic priorities:
* Strategic Communication and Community Engagement
* School Culture
Learning remains at the heart of each of these priorities through a key focus on our Culture, Values, Structures, Community, Relationships and Environment.
We provide quality education in a caring, secure and challenging learning environment. We are proud to lead a team of highly experienced, professional and skilled teachers who demonstrate their commitment to promoting excellence in student outcomes by ensuring stimulating, contemporary and relevant learning experiences that extend the boundaries of success. Our school fosters a culture of excellence and is committed to the recognition and celebration of achievement.
We are proud of our school and welcome you to join us to share in our culture, achievements and sense of community as we ensure our students realise their hopes, dreams and aspirations and prepare them for the brightest possible future.
