The Highlands staff believes a co-operative, open
environment fosters the best possible academic, personal and social development
for each pupil. Every child is
encouraged to become an independent, self-motivated student with a positive
attitude towards learning, a sense of responsibility and empathy for others.
Our school policies and procedures reflect
principles of child development, current educational practices and research,
and a concern for the needs of the individual child. Our programs assist students in acquiring the
knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to be successful in society.
We recognise that education is a partnership
between home and school, and we encourage parents to become involved through
the Highlands Parent Advisory Council (HPAC).
