Principal’s Welcome

Mr Matthew Dodd

Southern Cross Grammar has a proud history of meeting challenges with skill and composure. We have worked hard and attracted outstanding staff who understand the value of high performance and resilience. This year, perhaps more than any other time, we hold great pride in our community’s strength and spirit during challenging times.

As a school community focused on personalised approaches to learning and caring, we have continued delivering quality classroom learning experiences and many co-curricular activities and events both in and out of remote learning. Our modern approach and our capacity to support students’ learning with innovative technologies has been central in adapting to the changing environment and supporting our community throughout 2020.

We are also deeply appreciative of generous partners. The Inge family, who we recognised in the naming of our campus, were supporters who enabled us to build strong foundations in our earliest days. This example of support has grown and become a hallmark of our success. Our Board members, both past and present, our PFA and our outstanding families form an integral part of our school both past, present and into a bright future.

Like the proud constellation we take our name from, at Southern Cross Grammar, we celebrate everyone’s individual strengths and interests, and foster an environment where they experience a deep sense of belonging. This way staff, students and parents shine in their own right while also contributing to the overall success of our community.

The intimate size of our school, our buildings’ modern design, contemporary programs and our one campus F-12 structure all form part of what is a warm, productive and exceptional experience for our students.

With our plans well underway to expand our facilities and a commitment to continual improvement, we are excited for the bright future ahead for our school, students, staff and our community.

I am confident that when you visit our beautiful campus and experience our warm, hard-working and high performing community, you will feel the SCG difference for yourself.
