At The Hester Hornbrook Academy (HHA) we believe that education is a critical tool for young people to create their own future. Education should not just focus on an academic outcome but be holistic and meet the wider needs of a young person.
Our mission is to provide an innovative, inclusive and engaging educational experience that will:
Our values underpin our individualised healing orientated approach to education and wellbeing:
The Hester Hornbrook Academy’s core values are aligned with the principles of inclusiveness, love, hope, service, and social justice begin fundamental to our practice.
At HHA we believe that everyone in the community has a right to have their voice heard and should have the resources necessary for participation in community and social life.
As part of the wider Melbourne City Mission (MCM) organisation, HHA understands the critical importance of collaboration and co-operation within a community, leading to stronger responses and better outcomes.
We wish to Acknowledge the Traditional Owners, Custodians and caretakers of the lands, skies and waters we are on today, The Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation. I wish to pay our respects to their creation spirit, Bunjil the Eagle, their country that has nurtured and cared for us, their resilience and self-determination, their elders and knowledge holders past, present and emerging.
