    School Philosophy

    We are nestled in a beautiful and peaceful area and welcome students from a variety of communities.  Our school offers programming from Kindergarten through Grade 6.  

    We take pride in supporting all students, recognizing that each child has individual strengths and needs.  We strive to create meaningful and relevant learning experiences where students can apply their in-class experiences and concepts they've learned to real life situations. We also strive to build a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy through the various reading comprehension supports that we have in place. The ability to read, write, create meaning, think critically and communicate using evolving technologies and tools is essential to student success, especially in an ever-changing society.

    Student Awards

     THE PRESTON MANNING SCHOLARSHIP 

    The Preston Manning Scholarship was first established in 1997 in honour of Mr. Preston Manning, who attended and graduated from Horse Hill School, and wished to establish a scholarship at the school.  The award would recognize a grade nine student who best combines academic excellence with positive citizenship qualities.

    In June of 2003, it was necessary to change the terms and conditions of the award because the Horse Hill Junior High program was closed.  With the support of the Manning family, the award was changed to recognize grade 6 students who best combined academic excellence with positive citizenship qualities.

    Purpose and Nature of Award

    The purpose of the award is to give recognition annually to two grade six students, the all-around top grade six male and female, who best combine academic excellence with outstanding citizenship.

    The Preston Manning Scholarship will consist of:

    • an engraved permanent Preston Manning Scholarship for Senior Academic Achievement plaque to be retained and displayed at the school
    • a cash award of $250 for each recipient 

    Qualification Criteria

    The grade six students who are selected shall satisfy the following criteria:

    • achieve an honours standing;
    • demonstrate good citizenship characteristics and display responsibility, initiative, perseverance, cooperation, and a desire to succeed;
    • contribute to school life through involvement in student government, co-curricular activities, or community service;
    • demonstrate positive relationships with peers and a positive attitude toward learning; and
    • is seen as a positive representative of Horse Hill School.

    Selection Process

    The principal in consultation with the staff will review proposed candidates on the basis of the above criteria.  The principal will make the final selection of the award recipients and shall be responsible for ensuring that the awards are presented each year.

Welcome

Welcome to our Horse Hill website. We are very proud of our school! Horse Hill is a small country school with a strong family atmosphere. 

We are accepting registrations for the 2017-18 school year. Please call or stop in anytime for a tour!

Principal's Message

Welcome to Horse Hill school!  The 2017-2018 school year promises to be an exciting and rewarding year!.  Our staff are committed to helping students discover their passions, explore their interests and uncover their strengths.  We will challenge students to be the best that they can be; to accept their own and others' strengths and weaknesses; to celebrate successes, and to see mistakes not as failure, but as an essential part of the learning process. They will be asked to be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others; and to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners.

Our staff supports all learners through an educational strengths-based approach where we collaborate, refine teaching practices and build engaging learning environments. Horse Hill staff is committed to continuous improvement and we are dedicated to a collaborative culture.  Each day we work together to achieve the collective goal  of academic success for all of our students!   With the dedicated efforts of an exemplary staff, and supportive and informed parents we can support our students through our shared expectations of academic, social and emotional success.  

If you are willing to volunteer your time to support school initiatives, please come and visit us at the school office. We encourage our families to check Schoolzone and Class Dojo regularly for school news, class news and district news.
