Welcome to the 2021 school year with an extra special welcome to those families who are new to our school. I am delighted that you have chosen Dianella Secondary College for your child’s educational journey and that you have put your faith in us in looking after their needs. We are all looking forward to another year where we can build on our previous success. Dianella Secondary College prides itself on the opportunities we provide our students. With over 60 different cultures attending each day, we are extremely fortunate that this rich and vibrant community gives students a range of experiences seldom found in other schools. We often use the saying “because we are all different, we are all the same”. It is an incredibly important message and one that we actively promote.
I would like to encourage parents and caregivers to be active partners in your child’s educational journey. By working together, we can make a difference for students. You can do this by providing quiet places for them to study, minimise their time on social media, ensure that they are eating well and they are coming to school regularly and on time. The research is very clear that parents who actively engage with a school will enhance a student’s ability to be successful.
I am looking forward to a successful year ahead and playing my part in helping our school be the very best we can. Again we are very fortunate to be at a school that values diversity, student success and helping to shape our students to be successful lifelong learners.
