Head Teacher’s Philosophy
The School is: A safe place where people are kind, considerate and capable, where a child can start school life happily and make early friends with confidence. A place of fun, purpose and success providing an excellent education; inspiring and challenging the mind and the imagination. In a world that is changing at an accelerating rate, we concentrate on knowing each child and understanding what is important to every family. Parents are fiercely loyal to this philosophy; it is borne out in excellent results and in the open, thoughtful and happy children.
Hawkesdown provides outstanding education with individual attention for every pupil and excellent outcomes, including for the pupils’ next school entry. Parents and staff are devoted to the School, and prospective parents are always most welcome to visit.
