Board Welcome

The board would like to officially welcome you and your family to Hensman Street Elementary, and thank you for choosing us for what in many cases will be your child’s first experience in a school environment.  Underpinned by STEAM learning subjects, we strive to create a dynamic yet age appropriate learning environment filled with fun and inspiration that will set your child on a path of lifelong learning. 

Our board is made up of volunteers from a range of industries – most of whom joined because their children were attending Hensman Street, but all of whom are on the board because they share a passion for creating an exceptional early childhood learning environment.

We trust that you and your family enjoy your time at Hensman Street, and please don’t hesitate to get involved along the way wherever you can.
