Principal’s Welcome

It is my great privilege to welcome you to the Balga Senior High School website.

Balga SHS is a leader in many areas and we will continue to strive to ensure that we provide quality teaching and learning opportunities for students, ensuring that our students have access to the best possible opportunities and experiences throughout their time at Balga. Much of what we do at Balga SHS is about ensuring each student is provided with opportunities that allow them to develop in a caring, supportive environment and for this reason we have a strong pastoral care structure at the centre of the school. We have high expectations and high aspirations for every one of our students and our vision is that our students aspire to be the best they can be.

In my role I am determined to work with each child to help them secure an outstanding future where we will build on their strengths and develop their weaknesses to assist them grow into aspirational, responsible and respectful young adults.

I am proud to be the principal of a school that forms an integral part of the Balga community and I invite you to come on a tour of the school.  Gain a sense of the learning and relationships that exist in every classroom, experience our culture, and observe the pride we have for our school and for all those who pass through its doors.
