Principal's Message

Coleman Simon web resize3

Our school is at the heart of our community and we have a long history of forging strong connections with our district. Much of our teaching and learning takes full advantage of our fantastic natural environment, our supportive community and the strong and positive relationships we have established with those involved in a variety of outdoor pursuits, agriculture, business and community organisations.

Great relationships are also an integral part of student success at Geraldine High School and are highly valued by all within our school. We have an enviable reputation of delivering excellent and comprehensive wellbeing care which ensures all our students, from Year 7 to 13, feel a real sense of belonging, engagement and support, as well as having the opportunity to develop important qualities such as confidence and resilience. This school culture is achieved through numerous initiatives delivered by both staff and outside agencies and is supported by our fantastic Hauora Team.

With less than 650 students it is still possible for teachers to know every student well. This knowledge and understanding enables our staff to focus on continually improving academic achievement and to provide meaningful teaching and learning opportunities for every student. These occur in the classroom, through a vast array of sporting and cultural activities, and through our specialist teaching and learning programmes, such as Outdoor Education and our Primary Industries Academy.
