Welcome to the Engadine High School website.
I am extremely honoured to be principal of our beautiful, comprehensive school located south of Sydney, adjacent to the Royal National Park. We are a fiercely proud public school which provides our students with the support, confidence and capacity to become global focussed honourable citizens who substantially contribute to an ever changing world.
We believe that learning flourishes when it occurs in a positive, safe and nurturing environment where learning is a shared endeavour for parents, their children and our students. I believe high expectations of all are fundamental to the success of our learning community. Committed, professional staff are expert in their content and pedagogy and engage in professional learning to ensure the currency of their practice in order to maximise the potential of all of our young people.
We work tirelessly to provide the very best educational and co-curricular opportunities in a wide range of areas including performing arts, sport, leadership, science, technology, the humanities and social justice action. Our staff passionately contribute to these programs because we believe learning is not only about academic achievement, but it is also about nurturing a young person’s interests, developing their character and building their resilience. Our active presence on social media and this web site certainly provide evidence of just some of the many successful programs for which our school has earned an excellent reputation.
Engadine High School is a positive and thriving community which continues to forge innovative and exciting links with the wider world, from international university partnerships through to powerful community relationships. Our students flourish in a school which balances high support with high expectations. My joy in our school is without end, as I witness and share the journey of our students becoming young people who can make a difference in our increasingly complex world.
