"Play The Game!" …. That is our school motto! This does not just refer to being a good sport, it also means to live life well ….. be the best you can be in everything that you do…. in education, work, family and friendship. This is no easy task, but this is the ethos that Hanwood Public students are encouraged to understand, embrace and live by.
