Principal's message

I consider it a privilege and honour to be principal of Parramatta High School, a school with a very proud history. Established in 1913, it was the first co-educational high school in Sydney. School life has always been enriched by a culturally diverse student population.

Selective classes commenced in 2010 with 60 Year 7 students in the selective cohort and the school has high expectations for sustained academic success. A high proportion of Higher School Certificate (HSC) students accept positions in university courses and our students are regularly placed on the merit list.

I challenge each student to contribute to our history and the fine reputation of our school. This is done through academic achievement, participation in the diverse range of extra-curricular activities which include debating, public speaking, musical or dramatic performance, sport, student leadership programs and fundraising for charities. Contribution can be as simple as politeness and good manners, helping out a friend or treating others with dignity and respect.

Your comments and feedbacks are most welcome.
