Principal's Welcome

Welcome, we know that your visit will give you a wonderful insight into our school and what we value. You will see and read about the exciting programs and learning opportunities we have for students, and the colour and excitement of a typical year.

Students are our priority. Everything we do, every decision we make and every dollar we spend will have a student focus, and will lead to better outcomes for all students.

Belmont High School has a rich tradition of academic excellence, innovative teaching and learning, outstanding facilities and a co curricular program that is second to none.

Our core purpose and values are developed in our School Strategic Plan and expressed in the following wording:
‘Belmont High School is a learning organisation for both students and adults. We organise learning according to developmental needs, and provide learning experiences, wellbeing, a positive set of values and attitudes, and outstanding opportunities and experiences. On leaving school, our young people are equipped for the challenges of the 21st century, and have enjoyed their time with us.’

‘What we want for our children we should also want for our teachers -that schools be a place of learning for both of them and that such learning be suffused with excitement, engagement, passion, challenges, creativity and joy’
(Professor Andy Hargreaves)

Student learning is our core educative purpose. The following values inform our actions and behaviours, and promote effective learning:

  • RELATIONSHIPS
  • TEAMWORK and COOPERATION
  • RESPECT
  • EXCELLENCE and HIGH EXPECTATIONS (Strive for the Highest)-
  • WELLBEING AND HUMOUR
  • COMMUNITY

Please enjoy our website. We hope that you will also have the opportunity to enjoy our learning community, and share with us as we continue to Strive for the Highest.
