7-9 Student Engagement & Wellbeing
10-12 Student Engagement & Wellbeing
Student Learning & Outcomes
As a school community we develop our students academically, socially and emotionally in an environment which values a holistic approach to education, thus enabling students to leave Year 12 well educated, and possessing the necessary personal qualities to succeed. We prepare our students for the demands they will face in the workforce, society, and personal relationships. Our school is a 7-12 campus which allows greater interaction between senior and junior year levels; where students get to know all staff members. Many extra-curricular activities are available to students including the annual school production, music program, sporting activities, and chess club to involve students in the wider school community. Our students are actively encouraged to participate as it helps them make friendships, and take on leadership roles. The Student Representative Council has an active role in the school and is a key element in the student voice in our community. The SRC has representatives from each year level.
Our staff are dedicated to providing a valuable education to every student. The school motto ‘Quant Je Puis’ (As much as I am able) adequately reflects the motivation of the staff and student body to achieve excellence in all areas of schooling. The staff and I encourage communication between parents and the school, viewing the relationship between home and school to be an important one for students.

As Trafalgar High School’s 2021 School Captains, we endeavour to create a safe and welcoming environment were all opinions are valued and everyone’s interests are accounted for. As School Captains, part of our role is to receive feedback from our peers and other members in our school community so we can try and encompass all ideas to improve the schooling environment as much as possible. Part of our role as School Captains is to attend weekly meetings with Mrs. Mersey, hold student leadership meetings with house, arts and science Captains and also meet with the school’s form and SRC Captains. On top of this we also attend staff meetings and monthly School Council meetings where all new ideas to bring into the school community can be discussed. As a team we aim to bring our school community closer together through fundraisers and other community events such as our school art show and embrace all students’ talents and opinions. Ultimately we aspire to be happy and approachable role models in the school yard and assist in helping students have the best schooling experience possible.
