Message from School Chairman

The School Council is dedicated to supporting a strategic direction which not only builds a vibrant, world-class educational facility but that promotes personal achievement, self-confidence and strong Christian values within a supportive learning environment.

St Hilda’s School is the custodian of tomorrow’s leaders; we are responsible for ensuring that each student understands her self-worth and is given the opportunity to reach her fullest potential. The School Council takes this responsibility seriously. Through responsible financial management and innovative education policy, the Council is working to ensure that the spiritual, emotional, psychological, academic and physical growth of each student is the hallmark of St Hilda’s School.

I hope that you will take the time to explore our website where you will see students and staff engaged in many wonderful and inspiring learning experiences.
