    I’d like to extend a heartfelt welcome to all of you. In the short time I have been with the organisation I have been so impressed with not only how wonderful this organisation is but also the commitment and support that the parent and wider community body extends to the school. Furthermore, TGS is especially fortunate to be staffed by a group of amazing professionals who are vocationally committed to your children’s wholistic educational wellbeing. Of course, there are the brilliant and talented young people who I am getting to know.

    Recently there have been a spate of movies produced about England and World War 2, including Dunkirk, Churchill and the soon to be released Darkest Hour. All these movies have a common theme about resilience and the ability to rise above almost insurmountable odds

    There is a saying “Never complain about what your parents didn’t give you – it was probably all they had”. When I speak with parents at our school I am reminded of this phrase daily. The sacrifices made by our families to ensure their child receives the education they need are an expression of true love. However making such sacrifices can cause extreme stress for families and many families carry secret burdens alone. The team at The Glenleighden School want our families to know they are not alone.

    As Michelle Obama urges “Just try new things, step out of your comfort zone and soar”. This term students have the opportunity to try many new things at the school with our increase in subject choices for the Senior School and new clubs for all students. Please encourage your child to participate in these options as they may discover a hidden talent or at the very least have enormous fun and make new friends.

    You may be unaware but The Glenleighden School is a special place not just because of the wonderful teaching and learning experiences that occur here, but also because we are the home of an endangered species – The Richmond Birdwing Butterfly. Take a wander to the playground and peer into the fenced off habitat at the back and you will find this precious creature fluttering around.
