Principal’s Message

Dear HIS Community

We had another fun week at school with lots of learning happening across our units of inquiry. Please see the Crane Video for some action in the KG/Gr1 classroom looking at some mathematics skills as well as some great artwork. As we are a PreKindergarten-Grage 12, we see the whole learning journey of students and in this week’s Alumni talk, you can hear from Elin who is now at university and talks about her pathway into the Arts, which started many years ago with her creative activities in the primary school, perhaps even making seed pictures. You never know where your artistic exploration will lead you. Many thanks to Elin for sharing her story with us. Enjoy your weekend.

Kind regards

Damian Rentoule
