Meet our Principal

We provide our students with the optimal opportunity to achieve.

Fintona is a small, innovative and caring school with a long tradition of providing girls with a love of knowledge, the courage to excel, a global outlook and a deep sense of social responsibility.

Since its commencement in 1896, Fintona has espoused the view that girls can do anything. The aim I share with our committed teachers is, for each student to develop a sense of self-worth, enthusiasm for learning, respect for others and to be optimistic about their future.

The School community is immensely proud of our reputation as a school that achieves exceptional VCE and NAPLAN results that consistently place it among the top performers across the state and indeed the country.

At Fintona, the on-going development of our curriculum is testament to our commitment to provide our students with the optimal opportunity to achieve. Our curriculum allows for an effective combination of traditional subjects and innovative, challenging approaches. All students are encouraged to enjoy their learning, to show compassion and tolerance, embrace diversity and develop a sense of cultural heritage.

I encourage you to take the time and find out more through our website about what makes Fintona a truly unique school.

For those of you who have children at Fintona, I am sure that your child will never forget the wonderful time spent here.
