This web site is designed to give you an insight into what happens at Halswell School, what we believe is important and how we go about providing a quality education for the young learner who attends this school.
Halswell School was first open in 1864 and has a long history of providing quality education to the young learners who have attended. Our Mission is to have all children enjoying ‘Lifelong Success Through Learning’. To achieve this we believe children perform best when enjoying themselves, that their learning is likely to advance more significantly when challenged by appropriate stimulating experiences and when they have a trusting relationship with an excellent teacher. We aim to develop young literate learners, capable of working co-operatively, who are ACTIVE, who dare to ask multifaceted questions and have mastered the skills to create workable solutions to complex problems.
