From the Chairman of the Board of Trustees

Henderson High School Chair Statement

Talofa Lava, Greetings

It is a privilege that, as Chair of the Board of Trustees, I welcome you to our website.

Henderson High School has a proud history as the first secondary school in West Auckland, built in 1953. We have continued to modernise and redesign our school to meet the educational needs of our students in the 21st century.

Although our school is growing, we are still small enough to get to know our students as individuals.

We are technologically savvy and we ensure that we provide technology such as 3-D printers and laser cutters and, because of our size, all of our students get the opportunity to access these technologies.

Our academic achievements have continued to improve to the level that we are now recognised as a top performing Decile 3 school in the country.

We have excellent staff, led by our Principal Ros Robertson, who are qualified, skilled and committed. We are proud of our students who are keen to learn, well behaved and great ambassadors of our school.

I am privileged to serve as Chair of our Board of Trustees, alongside my fellow board members who are passionate, committed and experienced. We feel we govern the school well in providing the vision and the support to our principal, staff and students.

Our school community supports us to create a wonderful learning environment to ensure our students leave Henderson High School well prepared for the next stage of their educational journey and go on to be leaders and contributing members of this great nation of Aotearoa.
