Choosing a school for your child is a significant decision. For more information:
“It's the vibe of the thing, your Honour.” - Dennis Denuto, The Castle
Whenever I am asked what makes our school different to others, I am tempted to repeat the famous quote from the film “The Castle”.
To be honest, I can talk about our growing strength in sport, our excellent academic results our powerhouse Performing Arts groups or our well-maintained and well resourced campus, but in the end its all about the feel of the school. It is the one thing that most of our new students commented upon in their early days as students of St Columba: The friendliness, the sense of acceptance and the feeling that they belonged. This is “the vibe” that resonates with our students.
It is hard to explain where this comes from. Is it the nature of the students, the positive expectations that come from the staff or the sense that doing well at this school is something to be proud of? All I can say, in all honesty, is that there is something about this school that makes it the most friendly and positive one that I have ever experienced. That makes it the “right” school for me. My hope is that, if you join us here, you feel the same way.
