Amazing news for our school today! After our successful ERO visit, our Board and Staff decided we should enter the Prime Minister’s Education Excellence Awards that were closing on 18th March. These awards must relate to a case study, so we shared our journey in lifting writing achievement, and what we have done as a team to make this possible. Today we have been announced as National Finalists in two of the main categories, Excellence in Leading and Excellence in Governing! This is a wonderful achievement for our entire Learning Community. You can find out more about this at https://www.pmawards.education.govt.nz/finalists/ . We now look forward to welcoming two of the national judges to Hinuera School, as well as a film crew who will capture our story. Special thanks to everyone for working so hard to continue Learning and Growing together!
