Their outstanding professional, caring partnership with students and parents in the education of this generation of young people is more evidence of how excellence is expressed within our community.

We hire and train expert, dedicated and collaborative teaching and education support staff who are passionate about bringing out the best in each student.

Our students keep improving because our teachers keep improving.  They are lifelong learners committed to delivering high impact, evidence based instructional practice and values education that sees students flourish now and in the future.

Our students and parents sing the praises of our teachers and support staff long and loud. Over and over again we hear the stories of how staff members have gone ‘above and beyond’ to meet the learning, social and wellbeing needs of individuals and families. This is a true reflection of the St Helena spirit; the culture of supportive, positive relationships that underpins the learning and wellbeing of all community members.
