Margaret Hendry School delivers student-centred learning in a progressive and contemporary learning environment.

Individualised learning and inquiry-based activities nurture a culture of self-motivation. Students work in collaborative multi-age groups with mentors and progress based on personal learning achievements. They are supported and challenged to grow based on their developing interests, knowledge and skills.

A high standard of literacy and numeracy forms the foundation of learning across all age groups. These core competencies open up pathways for children of all learning styles to participate effectively across the curriculum.

Each day our highly skilled team of educators deliver a diverse range of exciting learning activities across the full spectrum of the Australian Curriculum. Teachers engage students in pursuing their talents by bringing together theory and practice with hands on learning.

The eight areas of the Australian Curriculum are:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • The Arts
  • Technologies
  • Health & Physical Education
  • Languages

Margaret Hendry School’s modern campus is designed to form functional, adaptable educational spaces. The result is an innovative environment which maximises individualised approaches for different learning styles.

21st Century Learning empowers children to confidently gather and process information from multiple sources. Authentic teaching moments occur naturally in this integrated system and foster deeper engagement in learning. At Margaret Hendry School children are nurtured to follow their curiosity and empowered to find answers. The outcome is citizens who are prepared to reach their full potential.
