Our Vision & Values
Our Purpose: The core purpose of Prahran High School is for all students to learn and to develop the intellectual rigour and character required to make a positive impact in their world.
Our mission is to foster curiosity, creativity and empathy in the students in our care in order to develop young leaders of character and purpose who can confidently embrace life’s challenges and make a positive impact in their world.
Supported by Our Values: The “4 Pillars”…
The ability to think creatively and critically will be a defining trait of tomorrow’s successful young adults. We encourage creative, independent and original thinking in all aspects of our school curriculum, fostering an environment of active collaboration and exploration.
Curiosity is the doorway to exploration, understanding and the acquisition of knowledge and wisdom. We encourage our students to be lifetime learners and are inspired by what Albert Einstein once said: “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious”
Today’s students will learn to live, grow and work in the most challenging of times characterised by complexity, uncertainty and constant change. We will strive to strengthen resilience, resolve and intellectual rigor in our students so they will be up for the challenge.
Character traits including empathy, compassion and self-awareness are essential to living a meaningful and purposeful life. At PHS, we emphasise the development of sound and strong character alongside the achievement of academic excellence.
