LIFE AT DHS
Get to know Hakea House
Hakea House is a place where all students, teachers and parents are inspired to form strong learning bonds, connections and partnerships in a warm, nurturing and supportive learning environment. Our focus is personalised success, so individual growth and achievement is nurtured and formally celebrated. Students and staff are regularly challenged to move beyond their comfort zone to continually strive for excellence.
Through developing a deep understanding of what an exemplary house looks, feels and sounds like, our team is working hard to develop and implement key initiatives and programs to take the House to the next level. A key focus this year is to develop a shared responsibility within our learning community. Student Leaders are imperative to this work and act as an extension of the House Leadership Team. Student, staff and parent voices are valued and encouraged in order to create a shared and negotiated learning environment, where all are empowered, and meaningful connections are created.
