At HHIS we provide situations that give children an acceptable degree of challenge. Our teachers use assessment to plan lessons and set tasks for students at just the right level so that the work is sufficiently challenging for all abilities. Activities that are slightly difficult for the child are more motivating and provide for stronger feelings of success when they have been accomplished.

Our natural outdoor learning environment is so much a part of our children’s learning experiences because it has been carefully designed, planted and resourced to provide a range of challenges and activities. Through continuous active involvement in this environment, children gain confidence, learn perseverance and develop personal qualities that impact very positively on their academic achievement. At HHIS we don’t forget, that the habits and attitudes towards learning that are formed in school, set the mood for all future learning.
