Head of school’s Comment

I had the pleasure this week of dining with our Head Boy, Head Girl, Head Chorister and Art Prefect. As we were eating and discussing all manner of things, I was struck by the students’ confidence, demeanour and overall positive outlook. We are focussing on the value of self-respect at the start of Term 1 and we should be rightly proud of our new leadership team and the example they set for our younger children. Our students are held in such high regard by many high schools throughout Sydney, not just for their academics, but more importantly for their character and the dignity in which they hold themselves. I am looking forward to having lunch with all our wonderful 6th Class students throughout the year!
If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself.  Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you.   Fyodor Dostoyevsky
