WHY ST HELENA?

‘Every person, every classroom, every day.’

If you want to be part of a safe, supportive, dynamic and genuinely caring community ....

...that’s committed to delivering an outstanding holistic education and that produces confident, capable, resilient and ethical young people, then St Helena is the secondary college for you.

Our students are happy and thrive in the relaxed yet orderly setting we provide across the 3 mini-schools: Junior (Year 7), Middle (Years 8-9) and Senior (Years 10-12). They know and conscientiously uphold our values and contribute to our culture of inclusion, realising personal and academic potential and serving the wider community.

Students appreciate the fact that they are known and that their individual needs and interests are catered for as they embrace the challenge to dare to be excellent in all fields of endeavour. Our expert, dedicated and caring teachers facilitate this outcome through engaging personalised learning programs that celebrate all progress along the learning continuum.

Young people flourish when their wellbeing is nurtured, when given pathway options, broad ranging opportunities through which to express their curiosity, creativity, passions and strengths, and when they are empowered to affect their own positive schooling experience.  St Helena ticks all these boxes through its policies, traditions, programs, and high level commitment to honouring student voice.

Should you choose St Helena Secondary College our daily purpose will be to see your child and equipped to be the very best version of themselves; to succeed and contribute positively now and in the future.
