Principal’s Message

At Hellings Elementary School, we believe that students are at the heart of the choices and decisions that we make on a daily basis. We strive to ensure that our students are safe, respected and happy members of our school community. When our students feel a positive connection to their school, they are ready to learn and achieve to the best of their ability.

Our mission statement continually provides direction for our school; “At Hellings Elementary School, our focus is on the students. Our challenge in assisting children to become life-long, responsible, independent learners is to: provide a safe, supportive and cooperative place of learning; celebrate our diversity and develop a climate of respect; encourage students to continuously strive for their personal best; teach an academically challenging curriculum. ”

We believe that our parent community is an equally important part of the success of our students and school
We encourage parents to participate in the daily learning activities of their child by talking to their child about their learning and by using planners to openly communicate with their child’s teacher. There are also many other opportunites for parents to connect with the school by being active members of the PAC, by attending sporting and musical events, student-led conferences and parent-teacher interviews.
