Principal's message

Mrs Clifton - Principal

Macarthur Girls High School has a team of educators and administrators that consistently provide our students with a wide range of whole school and in class learning experiences in a supportive environment, enabling them to achieve their best.

Our school has a very positive culture. All decisions made at the school are based on our pride values. The students show pride in themselves, pride in our achievements and pride in our school, including its traditions and environment. This acronym PRIDE stands for Participation, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence. The culture of our school is underpinned by this simple yet highly effective values system.

As Parramatta grows to become the new CBD of Sydney, our school is well placed to manage changes arising from Parramatta's new status. The school has been at the forefront of future focused learning for a number of years. It is prepared for changes in teaching methodology and learning spaces required to meet the future skills and capabilities identified for employment. Macarthur Girls High School has been recognised state wide as an exemplar in innovative curriculum design and implementation, collaborative learning spaces, an integrated curriculum and initiatives in literacy, numeracy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and was selected as an Ambassador School by the NSW Department of Education in 2021.

We believe that students will achieve to their potential when parents, staff and students work together and support each other to create the best learning environments possible.

I commend our website to you. I hope it provides you with an insight into what makes the learning community at Macarthur Girls High School so unique and why our students enjoy being Macarthur girls.
