MARGARET HENDRY SCHOOL - Learning Community


Margaret Hendry School is the ACT’s newest public school located in the suburb of Taylor in north Gunghalin. The learning community caters for children from 4yrs to 12yrs of age and their families.


The learning community is a central hub built to support and connect our community. It is an innovative learning environment built around open learning areas, smaller flexible and adaptable studios and interconnected outdoor learning spaces. The school contains a range of purpose-built facilities for music, physical education, and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). It also has access to six playing fields, two hard surface courts, school hall with indoor/outdoor stage and community facilities, a resource centre, canteen, and out of hours care centre.


Progressive design coupled with a future-focused, evidence-based approach to education establishes Margaret Hendry as a leader in educational excellence. Student centred learning is at the heart of the educational philosophy. Innovative use of multi-age classes reflects a commitment to personalised learning that is implemented across the school. The foundation skills of literacy and numeracy underpin all activities to enable deep learning through an inquiry pedagogy.
