As you make this important decision for your child, there is much here for you to explore. I also encourage you to join one of our regular tours and chat to us directly. I’m sure that as you engage with us, you will see, feel, hear and believe the many factors that set Prahran High School apart – the positive qualities that make us unique.
I certainly hope that you feel confident (and excited) that you now have the chance to choose a school that has the culture, beliefs and values that best align with you and your child.
We are not the biggest school, the oldest school or the most expensive school in our community. We aren’t that, but we are this: we are the most innovative, the most caring, the most inclusive, the most dynamic and we are also one of the most effective. Students are engaged, contributing and they are learning.
We continue to be guided by our core values, which we have framed as learner dispositions. We believe it is vital for success in school and in life that we are learners who are curious, creative and who embrace challenge. We also believe that it is so important to value what it means to be truly of good character, that we are kind, honest and supportive people.
Further, we talk about ‘impact’ a lot at our school. ‘Make an Impact’ is our motto and it drives us every day. Young people have immense power to ‘make an impact’ in their school, community and world and I am committed to providing them with every opportunity to do just that.
Sitting proudly in a stunning, contemporary building on High Street, Prahran, we are positioned strongly and confidently in the heart of this community. We are a strong, diverse and harmonious school community and we are committed to strengthening that culture even further into the future.
Our teachers are great leaders and they are extraordinary. Every day, they create engaging and dynamic learning experiences, fostering a love for knowledge, and nurturing the potential of every student at PHS. Our kids deserve the best teachers and support staff, and here at PHS they have just that. Our students are amazing and their energy fills this place with vitality, big ideas and positivity every day.
I am privileged to lead this community and I am full of enthusiasm for the future.
I am delighted to welcome you to Prahran High School.
