It is my pleasure as the newly appointed principal of Denmark Senior High School to welcome you to our school community. We pride ourselves on being large enough to cater for the diverse needs of our students and small enough so that every child is known and appreciated for the skills and talents that they bring with them.

As we come of age, turning twenty-one in 2021, we are excited about embarking on our next Business Plan. The school priorities focus on health & wellbeing and teaching excellence to support student success. Our Business Plan remains a work in progress at present but we look forward to setting aspirational targets that will continue to ensure that the education your children gain is of a consistently high standard.

Our school motto – Strive to Achieve – is evident in our values of respect, resilience and aspiration. We believe that every child can achieve. It is our role to support their educational journey as they make their aspirations a reality. We also value parents and caregivers as essential partners in their child’s education.

Regular attendance is the first key to success and we ask that you work with us to encourage your children to attend every day when they are fit and well to do so.

I look forward to getting to know the Denmark community, having now made this town my home.
