Welcome from the Hurupaki School family
Hurupaki School caters for children from Year One to Year Six level.
Hurupaki School’s vision; Learning Today for Tomorrow, is forward thinking and relates to preparing our students to face their future with confidence. The school has a reputation for developing a life-long love of learning and caring environment where participation and excellence in academic, artistic, sporting, digital, environmental and cultural activities is actively promoted. Talent and creativity is nurtured and we are proud of the achievements of our learners.
The school’s innovative learning environments are flexible and inclusive in that opportunities are provided for a variety of activities to occur. We know that all learners learn in different ways, and at different times they may need to work alone or together, sitting or standing, with technology and without it, in quiet spaces or with noise, indoors and outdoors. There is room for collaborative group-based activities as well as quiet areas for reflection or reading. The open collaborative learning spaces are used creatively to ensure learning is social, open, engaging and relevant. The usual teacher to child ratio applies and children benefit from having more than one teacher to support them in their learning space. Teachers benefit from having the opportunity to problem-solve together.
Students are supported as active learners taking an increased level of responsibility for their learning. Learning progressions are used to support our learners to know how am I doing?, where and I going?, and where to next? Hurupaki School is committed to building the necessary foundations of knowledge and competencies to support students with succeeding in life and learning.
School buildings are set within spacious park like grounds containing a solar-heated swimming pool, an extensive adventure playground, an impressive school hall and a continually developing wetlands area. Our children work hard in their environment to keep it attractive.
The Hurupaki Kindergarten is located on school grounds on the Three Mile Bush Road boundary. They have an interacting relationship with the school and are able to use our facilities when they wish.
