Our Principal is passionate about Perth College and wants others to feel the same.
Welcome to the Perth College community. As you read through the pages of this site, you will learn about our wonderful students and our School, and get a feel for the vibrancy and strength of the wider Perth College community.
Our students are independent, confident, and determined. They work hard to push intellectual boundaries, enjoy the freedom to experiment, engage in rigorous debate, strive for personal bests, embrace abundant leadership opportunities, learn to overcome obstacles and pray, laugh and grow. And they do all of this with a sense of humility.
In a world obsessed with image, we nurture and encourage our girls to be spontaneous, to have greater self-confidence and to build a self-esteem which is grounded in self-awareness. From a young age, our girls are taught to think independently and develop the attitude that being smart is a great thing to be.
Our School has a long tradition of educating girls, and was founded by women for women. Perth College has a strong philosophy of basing the education on the whole person – body, mind, heart and spirit – with a continued focus on academic excellence underpinned by strong pastoral care and a rich co-curricular programme across visual and performing arts, cultural activities and a wide range of sports.
As an Anglican school, the tradition of Christian worship and education is important, with all students taking part in Chapel services and participating in the Beliefs and Values curriculum. The School has long championed the importance of making a difference and giving back to the community, and students are offered the opportunity to take part in meaningful social justice projects.
Choosing a school can be one of the most challenging and difficult decisions a parent will make, as it really is an investment in your children’s future. I would encourage each and every parent to look for the school that best suits the needs and interests of their daughter. A school should offer an abundance of opportunities for students to explore, experience, learn, find their strengths and become the very best person they can.
The Perth College staff are highly professional: their commitment underpins the warmth and strength of this school community. As a mother of four girls myself, including two Perth College graduates, I know how important good relationships are in a school and how a girl’s education is based on a strong partnership between the school and the home. Our staff welcome and encourage open and positive communication with parents.
Of course, this website cannot take the place of visiting our School; I warmly welcome you to see our campus through an Information Session and Community Tour or our annual Open Day, and discover firsthand what makes a Perth College education so special.
