From the Principal

It is easy in our busy lives to become fixated on doing what we need to do “to get the job done”. In an achievement focussed environment, this might mean spending spare time on those activities that contribute to the achievement. For some, the achievement may be a career goal, possibly a higher paid position, a high ATAR, a larger home, or some other such outcome.

From the Senior School

Erik Erikson, a psychoanalyst, once remarked that if you wish to understand a culture, study its nurseries. Over the course of the last semester, I have been privileged to sit in on the classes of middle and senior teachers, observing their lessons. Our teachers possess significant depth of expertise, it has been a great joy to witness them deliver high quality learning experiences to our students.
