Atherton High continually demonstrates the high standards which have been achieved by the school over a long period of time, in particular in the academic and sporting areas. "Before taking up the position of Principal of Atherton High I was lucky to be able to hold a number of positions in a range of schools around the state. These schools ranged from small to very large in both urban and rural settings. These experiences, together with my experience in private industry, give me a solid background to working closely with Atherton High and it's community as we enter into the new millenium."
"Atherton High offers great opportunities for students, and I believe the size of our school is just right. We are big enough to offer a large range of opportunities, subjects and choices, for our students to study- but still small enough to offer that much needed personal touch. This, together with the strong community support we enjoy, places us as the strongest school on the Tablelands. I am certainly enjoying being involved with the school".
