Principal’s WelcomePRINT THIS ARTICLE
St Leo’s Catholic College Wahroonga is a comprehensive, coeducational Year 7 to Year 12 systemic high school within the Diocese of Broken Bay.
St Leo’s College celebrated 60 years of Catholic Education in Wahroonga during 2016. It is a privilege to be Principal of this secondary school; as a co-educational high school, St Leo’s provides an invaluable opportunity for students to appreciate the perspectives boys and girls bring to the community and successfully experience the sheer complexity of gender.
The College has developed a culture where diversity, equality and inclusion is encouraged and the staff and students work collaboratively to maintain this philosophy. There is significant focus at St Leo’s on living out the joy of the gospel by putting faith into action, which is supported by an extensive Social Justice Program where the students can be fully involved in a variety of activities that allow them to grow in faith and exercise Christian leadership.
A non-selective high school, St Leo’s high school delivers strong academic results across the curriculum in a broad range of subjects and consistently has its HSC student names appearing in the Premiers “All Rounders Achievers List”.
Consistently, more than 75% of students are offered a place each year at University (State average 30%). The Creative Arts students excel with regular nominations and selections into Art Express, and one of our current, 2015 HSC Drama students has just received a nomination into ‘Encore’, a program of outstanding HSC performances and compositions, held annually at the Sydney Opera House.
The continuing development of our music program is exceptional. In 2015 our Stage Band took first place and our mixed vocal choir, 3rd place in the Sydney Eisteddfod. In June 2016, our Symphonic Band came 3rd in the Sydney Eisteddfod Large Ensemble section. These excellent results reflect the depth of our music programe where students can participate in seven performing ensembles.
A multi tiered sporting program, devised and run by specifically trained and dedicated PE teachers deliver a quality internal sport programme which compliments the wide range of representative sporting opportunities that exist for the students.
Come and experience everything St Leo’s co-educational high school has to offer by booking a private tour, or attending our Open Day in March each year.
