Huanui College is committed to promoting achievement, raising standards and to providing an environment that encourages all students to develop their abilities to the fullest. We aim to provide a rich education for every student, working with them to extend and maximise their talents and interests and encouraging them to take pride in their accomplishments, by celebrating their successes. It is also our role to support our students to meet the challenges we set for them.
Different students will need different levels of support and we are committed to understanding the individual needs and circumstances of each student; building their confidence and providing strategies that will enable them to become more independent and assured in their daily lives and for whatever lies ahead.
