Tena Koutou, Welcome to our Huntly Primary School Website
Our beautiful school is nestled in mature trees on the edge of Lake Hakanoa. We have a growing role and currently have 9 classrooms of energetic and happy students. The Technology block is on site and local schools come to experience and learn the soft and hard technology of Cooking, Sewing, Woodwork and Robotics.
We have a specialised Te Reo Maaori teacher who works within our classes and supports a keen Kapa Haka group. We have dedicated teachers who strive to plan exciting programmes and engage their students. We have a supportive Board of Trustees who are progressive thinkers and keen to get technology to the forefront in our efforts to prepare our 21st Century learners. We have just embarked on the Ministry initiative of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) which is well supported by our parent community and exciting for us.
You are welcome to pop in and meet us all.
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L), improves the behaviour and wellbeing of children and young people.
PB4L is for all people throughout our school. It is a framework to help guide the systems created for individual students, groups, teachers, parents and whanau. It supports positive behaviour in situations of clear need, and in more settled environments.
