Principal's Message

We provide holistic learning outcomes at Genazzano which ensure students are equipped with the important life skills they will need after graduation. We achieve this through staff and student collaboration, where together they explore the suitability of programs to enhance their relevance; and dashboards have been created to monitor student learning and progress. This distinct learning culture is future orientated and responds to the needs of 21st century learners, offering new pathways from ELC to Year 12. We have also redesigned our timetables to meet the changing needs of students and staff; and created integrated programs allowing for interdisciplinary studies.
