Regardless, of how we perform this year, please remember that your life is not going to be defined by your ATAR. We will all leave school with a piece of paper that will be quickly forgotten. What will actually last, are the memories and experiences that we have all shared through our schooling journey. There are always teachers and parents that say “Year 12 is best tackled as a team.” But that doesn’t sit right with me. The truth of the matter is that we didn’t tackle this year as a team. The support, the care, the collaboration and respect that we as students showed each other throughout the year isn’t characterised by a team. Its characterised by a family.

To the 2019 cohort, good luck and here’s to our unique, weird, little family, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

— Daniel Gilerman, Student: Class of 2019

An individualised approach to learning means our students thrive in academic subjects and co-curricular activities. We offer each child abundant opportunities in which to participate, so that at each stage of their school career, they are empowered to discover their strengths and passions, not only as an individual but as a cohort.

Our students are encouraged to try new things and 'create' themselves; by developing new competencies, each student is prepared for a world that requires courage, resilience and flexibility.

Your child’s time at school should be happy. That’s why our school has a vibrant learning environment that comes from complementing the academic and co-curricular strengths with the three ‘Rs’ of pastoral care: relationships, respect and responsibility.

By Senior school level, we find our students have naturally built group-mindedness, where the success of the year is entirely based on the strength of its weakest member; everyone rallies together to pull each other up and to achieve the best outcome for all.
