2022 DEANS

The Deans provide advice and guidance to a group of students throughout their school career. Educational and social achievements and mature behavioural standards and responsibility are expected of all students. In parallel with the Form Class system, Deans move up through each Year Level with their cohort. Students and parents will therefore be dealing with the same Deans for their entire time at College.
