Principal's Message

Welcome to Bowral High School

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Bowral High School website.

Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations.

Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence, but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society.

Established in 1929, with a long and rewarding history of achievement in education behind us, our southern highlands school community continues to move forward together with confidence, pride, and enthusiasm.

We celebrate each student as being individual and unique and we support this, in partnership with the community, by providing a highly inclusive academic, social and cultural curriculum. Our staff is highly skilled and experienced.

Together, the teaching and support staff encourage, support, and inspire students to achieve their personal best and to feel positive about their education and learning.

The school motto is Excelsior – Ever Upward.

Parents and visitors compliment us on the warm, accommodating and orderly school atmosphere and our strong sense of community. We encourage all our students to develop high expectations about themselves, their work and their behaviour, which is an expression of our three school values. They provide our staff and students with a blueprint for life – Being Respectful; Being Responsible; Being Fair via our Positive Behaviour for Success (PBS) program, which is embedded in our school.

An extreme amount of care is also taken to ensure the positive well-being, happiness and safety of each and every student in our school.

Our parents are a strengthening power in helping mould the future of our students. Your consistent feedback and support empowers us to do more and more as a collective group in support of each students' personal endeavours, both in and out of the classroom. I pay my sincere gratitude to you for your continued faith and belief in our great public school.

In a world that rewards perseverance, resilience, initiative, problem-solving and cooperation, our students leave well prepared for tertiary education, vocational training and employment.

I am extremely proud of the significant accomplishments of our students and the results Bowral High School has achieved in being a worthy choice in public education.

Every decision we make is aimed at improving outcomes for students. At Bowral High School, students are first and foremost in the decision-making process.

Finally, the website showcases the wealth of experiences we offer all students here at Bowral High School and gives them a wider audience to showcase their wonderful work. We hope you enjoy your visit and return regularly to check out our latest news.
