Principal's Message

Dear parents/carers,

It is with great pleasure that I have joined the community at Georges River College - Hurstville Boys Campus and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you as Principal. I joined the Department of Education in 1991 and my teaching experience has included time at Granville Boys High School, Auburn Girls High School, Kingsgrove High School and most recently at Aurora College.

Our school seeks to educate young men to become successful leaders and achievers in whatever field they choose following their school career. Respect, Responsibility and Excellence are our core values and these underpin all aspects of school life. We aim to provide each student with a focused and energetic learning environment highly suited to the needs of boys and to deliver the best possible education with an emphasis on the needs of each individual.

High quality learning programs which focus on literacy and numeracy, the increasing use of technology, quality middle year boys’ education programs and a gifted and talented stream are features of the school. We strive to provide quality teaching strategies to maximise the potential of our 21st century learners. Students are challenged and engaged through authentic learning opportunities that inspire them to develop creativity, confidence and resilience to become independent and ethical life-long learners. We are partners in learning with our students and seek to deepen their knowledge, provide enriching and innovative learning experiences, while also gently urging our boys out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges. The school focuses on successful transition programs to prepare students for a seamless path to senior studies or school to work pathways.

We set high expectations for our boys and work hard to ensure they are known, valued and cared for. The school’s staff is committed to effective student welfare programs, including the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) initiative.

We value relationships and connections with the community. We encourage our students to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. We work hard to develop and sustain productive partnerships and connections with our parents, local schools, businesses and tertiary institutions.

I look forward to meeting you and working together over the course of the year.

Kathy Klados
