"Dare to be Excellent"

Our Principal

Welcome to St Helena and this website which provides an insight into our safe, supportive and dynamic learning community. As you explore the site we trust you will begin to appreciate why it is that here, each student is inspired to be their best; why they can and indeed do, dare to be excellent.

St Helena’s core purpose is to foster the growth and development of the whole person so each student can thrive and contribute positively in the rapidly changing, globally connected digital age.

We continually cultivate the factors that underpin this vision. They include our:
• culture of community connectedness
• mini-schools model and the orderliness afforded by our routines, policies and processes
• dedicated, expert staff
• personalised, broad ranging learning and wellbeing programs
• values for life focus
• commitment to altruism; and
• our drive for continual improvement.

To talk with our students is to understand that learning, whether physical, intellectual, social or emotional occurs in a happy, relaxed and flexible environment. At St Helena, learning is associated with fun, a sense of adventure, and the understanding that creativity, curiosity and inquiry can lead anywhere. It’s positively contagious! It also helps create the conditions that make daring to be excellent possible.

Having excelled, our students know what it takes to keep extending their potential and are inspired to reach for and express it. The ultimate result is productive lifelong learners.

 

We are justifiably proud of our reputation within the community for developing mindful, active and informed global citizens who graduate with options and who are ready, willing and able to live meaningfully in the service of others.

Please come and see us ‘at work’ during one of our school tours. It’s the best way to get to know us. Our students and staff will be happy to welcome you and share their respective St Helena learning journeys and experiences with you.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Karen Terry
