Welcome to St Heliers School

DSC 0052St Heliers is a school that strives for excellence. Our aim is to guide and nurture each student to reach their potential in all areas of school life. Integral to achieving this aim is having a close partnership between home and school.

Being a full primary (Years 1 to 8) we are in a unique position to see the development of the students from young bright-eyed 5 year olds to young adolescents. From the earliest stages of their schooling, students are encouraged to be independent, responsible learners.

Older students are expected to look out for younger students. At the start of the year senior classes are buddied up with a junior class to support the children in various aspects of their schooling. This also helps to create the family atmosphere we want at St Heliers.

jilleEarlier this term our Year 0-2 children were lucky enough to have a fabulous afternoon of storytelling and poetry with Jill Eggleton. They had some fabulous questions to ask Jill about her life as a published children's author and were able to see the process involved in creating a published story. They were able to share her latest book in the early stages of illustrating and publishing.

The junior teachers have also spent an evening working with Jill to further support and celebrate young writers in their classrooms.

A huge thank you to Jill Eggleton for visiting our school, Mrs Jackie Lyon for helping to facilitate the visit and finally our Year 0-2 staff for their continued desire to create the best writing opportunities for our children.
Mrs Wood, Y0-2 Team Leader
