Our Principal's Message


Welcome to Caroline Chisholm School.

Our school website provides a comprehensive guide to our diverse programs ranging from Ignite and Challenge classes for high achieving students to our Special Education Services, all underpinned by research based, high quality teaching practices.

Caroline Chisholm School located in south east Tuggeranong provides the opportunity to enjoy the continuity of 12 years of education from Preschool to Year 10.

Caroline Chisholm School comprises two co-located sites. The Junior Campus caters for Preschool to Year 5 students and the Senior Campus is designed to provide a Middle School for Years 6-8 and a Senior School for Years 9 and 10. We are well resourced with hall/gym, library, canteen and playing fields for each campus. The Senior Campus also has high quality facilities to provide VET pathways for students in Hospitality, Furniture and Horticulture.

The overall development and wellbeing of all students is very important to me and my dedicated staff. We work together to ensure our students have a strong sense of belonging to the school community and an appreciation and realisation of their capabilities and potential. High expectations are articulated through our rigorous curriculum and co-curricular program allowing students to explore and develop their strengths and talents.

Our school values underpin our expectations and it is through these that we aim to develop students with a strong sense of purpose, integrity and responsibility to others and self. By accessing all the school offers, students leave Caroline Chisholm School ready and willing to embrace the next stage of their future and with a well-developed sense of community.

Enquiries from existing and prospective families about our school are welcome. Please do not hesitate to make an appointment with myself or the Deputy Principals, Nicky Smith and Joseph Jennings – Junior Campus and Terrie McHardie and Shane Mitchell – Senior Campus. We aim to work closely with parents to enable the students to become lifelong learns, no matter what pathways they take.
