Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Lesmurdie Senior High School website. Whether you are already a member of our school community, a prospective parent or simply interested in finding out a little more about the school, I hope you will see what makes Lesmurdie unique and a respected leader in secondary education both in the Perth Hills area and in WA.

We are committed to the intellectual, creative, physical and social growth of our students and we respect them as individuals with different histories, needs, interests, abilities and aptitudes. Our students are friendly, confident and successful and we invite you to share our pride in their achievements. In all that we do, we place high value on catering for the needs of our students as individuals with differing backgrounds, abilities, learning styles and aspirations.

Lesmurdie Senior High School values the involvement and interest of our school community and we encourage parents to join with us by supporting our many activities and programs and trust that they always feel welcome on our campus. We value that parents are active participants in their children’s learning, resulting in a true partnership between the school and the family.

Since being recognised as an Independent Public School late in 2011, Lesmurdie has been on a consistent and exciting path of renewal and can boast some quality achievements. Lesmurdie is a school that values tradition, as well as embracing what is new, contemporary and innovative, to support and enhance our students’ journey into the future. In 2016, our school achieved its best set of overall Year 12 results in both the ATAR and VET areas.

At Lesmurdie, teaching and curriculum are responsive to our recognition that our students are members of a dynamic, changing world community. To offer the best opportunities, we seek relevance and excellence in pedagogies, curriculum content and classroom practices, so that through enthusiasm and commitment our students achieve outstanding success. At our school most members of the administrative team – Principal, Deputies, Program Coordinators – teach. This goes such a long way in demonstrating our genuine focus on instructional design.

Lesmurdie is a school of choice both for parents and for staff. Our Specialist Program in Mathematics and Science annually attracts applicants from about 40 primary schools across the state, the percentage of parents who reside in our intake area and who choose our school is at an all time high and for every merit-select teaching and administration position we advertise, we regularly get 50+ applicants.

Lesmurdie is a confident school. We are proud that we sincerely enact our motto and have all members of our school community thriving in a nurturing environment.
