Welcome to Naracoorte High School. I am privileged to be Principal of a school that is on an improvement journey from being a good 20th Century school to being a great 21st Century school defined in terms of students’ learning and wellbeing outcomes.
As a school we could not offer such high quality education and such rich diversity of programs if it were not for our passionate teachers and leaders who are highly committed to getting the best outcomes possible for each student. Our teaching staff devote many hours and boundless energy to continually improving their curriculum delivery and to our extra-curricular activities. We are lucky to have a staffing mix of highly experienced and early career teachers. They are supported by an equally committed and skilled team of paraprofessional staff who focus on delivering high quality service to students, staff and families as well as 21st Century work practices.
Our students too, have been active participants in our improvement journey. Student leaders have solicited the views of the student body in relation to what constitutes excellent teaching and learning, feeding this back to staff to allow the school to shape its teaching and learning experiences to enrich the learning experiences of all in our community.
We are very fortunate in terms of the support we enjoy from our community of families who value the rich educational opportunities provided by our school for their sons and daughters. In return they contribute their skills and financial support as well as enthusiastic participation in school events as diverse as parent information evenings, student-parent-teacher conferences, and hosting international students. Our community is represented by our highly skilled Governing Council, which meets monthly and monitors our school’s progress against our strategic priorities and delivery on our budget goals
