It is with great pleasure that I welcome our students and their families, to John Edmondson High School.

We are a new school that has, I believe, made a very auspicious beginning. It is a significant transition time, for both the young people who are enrolling at John Edmondson and their parents. Students bring with them the normal sense of anticipation and apprehension. The fears and concerns quickly subside as they are welcomed into their new school. For a parent, it is often a time for reflection as your young one reaches this milestone. Let me reassure you that your decision to enrol your child at John Edmondson High School has been a wise one. Our wonderful facilities, striking uniform and positive student attitude has already built a fine reputation in the community.

The many visitors to our school always comment on the manners and helpful nature of our students. We promote a spirit of participation and cooperation. We have high expectations for our students and a staff who are dedicated to providing the very best educational environment for our students. Our P&C and volunteer parent helpers are exceptional in their support of the school and its aim to provide a quality comprehensive educational program that caters for the needs of all our students.
