James Fallon High School is a comprehensive high school catering for a wide range of interests and abilities, says principal Jennifer Parrett.
And, she says the school has a commitment to serve both its students and the wider community.
“Our school community supports all manner of learners in a caring and diverse environment,” she said.
“The school has as its central concern the achievement of excellence in a rich diversity of academic, social, cultural and sporting pursuits.”
The performing arts program at James Fallon High School has a long tradition of success, as exemplified by awards in the Wakakirri competition and acknowledgement both locally and statewide in producing musicals and the creative and digital arts.
Ms Parrett said opportunities existed beyond the classroom in which students were able to develop leadership and academic skills, such as the Bush Tukka hospitality program for Aboriginal students and the successful Cafe J, a curriculum-based retail operation run out of one of the many Trade Training facilities.
As a NSW public school, James Fallon collaborates in all manner of ways with Albury High School and Murray High School, as a secondary education community of practice.
“James Fallon High School is a ‘Positive Behaviour for Learning School’ and has as its main values: Respect, Responsibility and Achievement. The school motto is ‘Together we succeed’.
