Our School

Everybody cares about and knows one another

With just over 400 students, our school is a community in the truest sense of the word. Our students and staff enjoy feeling part of a community - everybody knows your name, every person is cared for, valued and shares a sense of belonging.

Achievements are celebrated as a community and support and care is offered when needed. Unity is our strength!

Our location in the multi-cultural northern suburb of Girrawheen, means that our students reflect the diverse cultural nature of the surrounding areas. The student population represents a range of backgrounds:

  • Africa
  • Australia
  • Europe
  • South-East Asia

We value, support and celebrate diversity and recognise the valuable contribution our multi-cultural student body brings to the life of the school.

Our curriculum encourages students to achieve secondary school graduation and pursue further education and training or employment.

We work hard to provide choices for our students. Our curriculum allows for both academic and vocational pursuit. All students are catered for and programs are tailored to meet their needs.

We boast a number of specialised programs that allow students to vigorously pursue their interests:
