Welcome

 

Howick College is a multi-cultural co-educational secondary school with a proud reputation for delivering quality education. We recognise and celebrate the achievement of our student’s academic, cultural, sporting and leadership potential. Our vision to ‘inspire a community of passionate learners’ in every aspect of our work drives us to strive for and maintain excellence in everything we do. Teaching and learning is the cornerstone of the College with dedicated professionals committed to ensuring we provide a culture of extraordinary care for young people we serve.

 

Howick College provides learners with the skills and knowledge to enable them to be the best they can be. In conjunction with our teaching programmes, our core values of courtesy, commitment, curiosity and courage, will further strengthen our students' character and self-efficacy. As a consequence, we enjoy high standards of student conduct and behavior throughout our learning community. We are a dynamic and innovative school that explores opportunities to remain relevant in a rapidly changing society. We seek new ways to engage learners and to offer them appropriate educational pathways for future success.

 

As Principal, I am committed to strengthening the delivery of education we provide to meet the needs of young people. We have a safe and authentic supportive environment where everyone feels they belong. Our community partnerships are valued and together we continue to build trusting and reliable relationships that are always focused on the best possible experience for our children.

 

Our College is much more than just a place where learning occurs, it is a school that genuinely cares and strongly believes in the enormous potential of young people. A warm welcome to all members of our community.

Principal´s Sabbatical Report

 

During Term 2, 2019, I was fortunate to be granted sabbatical leave by our Board of Trustees in order to research boys' education in New Zealand and overseas. I enjoyed a rich learning experience in Canada, where I visited a number of high performing schools. Their system of education was impressive with many achieving high levels of student engagement and enjoyment.
