From The Principal.
A warm welcome to the Perth College community.
Perth College has a long tradition of outstanding academic achievement and purposeful holistic education designed to grow confident, grounded, ethical, and socially-responsible contributing members of our world. We are an intellectually-challenging, energetic and creative school for girls from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 (boys from Pre-Kindergarten to Kindergarten). We also offer an engaging early learning program for boys and girls which includes PC Playtime (playgroup), Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten. Set on beautiful grounds 10 minutes from the Perth central business district, we have a contemporary boarding house for long and short stays, set amongst stunning gardens, historic buildings and state-of-the-art facilities.
We are proud of our inclusive and nurturing environment where girls are encouraged to be brave and to confidently push themselves beyond their limits in and out of the classroom. Our girls are not afraid to try, fail and then grow from their experiences and adventures. These unique and challenging opportunities equip them to thrive as future pioneers.
Perth College appreciates the importance of high quality, creative and innovative teaching and learning. We value exposure to culture via music, literature and the Arts. We provide our girls with opportunities to explore the realms of Science, Mathematics and Technology for the purpose of pioneering improvements in innovation and health and wellbeing.
Our staff strive to instil within our girls a sense of deep worth and strong values to equip them to bravely face life’s challenges and act courageously as citizens of the world beyond Perth College. We also collaborate with students to develop their wellbeing, spirituality, physicality, and emotional and academic intelligence.
To make the most of opportunity takes bravery. Let’s acknowledge that if we choose to be brave we will absolutely fail and experience disappointment, setbacks and perhaps heartbreak. That’s the joy of living life to its fullest and becoming the best version of ourselves. When our girls are challenged, our role is to ask, “How can we help you with this challenge?” We know our girls are capable and we have faith they will navigate and learn from such experiences.
Come and experience Perth College for yourself – spend some time with us on campus, participate in our after-hours and holiday programmes, attend our community events, or tour our magnificent grounds and converse with our friendly staff. I am certain you will enjoy the experience!
I look forward to seeing you soon.
