The values of Fairvale High School are founded on the principles of tradition, care and innovation. The school’s supportive and caring environment builds learning capacity in a wide range of academic, sporting and vocational subjects.

I am looking forward to working with Year 7 and 8 students and their parents this year. Fairvale High School has so much to offer students to continue their journey onwards as lifelong learners. A key to being successful is the ability to be brave and step up to take on new challenges and opportunities. The opportunities at our school are diverse and can include academic, creative arts. sporting achievements.

We value our students and promote their resilience and wellbeing with our Learning 2 Live and FAIR whole school programs. As lifelong learners attendance is paramount to success and so every school day IS important and every day AT school is important.
