Dur­ing our time at Geral­dine High we have been en­cour­aged to chal­lenge our­selves in or­der to reach our full po­ten­tial. This has in­cluded a wide va­ri­ety of op­por­tu­ni­ties and the growth of lead­er­ship skills. Our school’s motto of ‘La­bor Om­nia Vincit’ which trans­lates to ‘Work Con­quers’, along with our four school values; Re­spect, Re­spon­si­bil­ity, Re­la­tion­ships and Achieve­ment are the base for build­ing the stu­dents of Geral­dine High School into stu­dents who will not only suc­ceed now but in their fu­ture en­deav­ours.

Geral­dine High School has al­lowed me to ex­cel in all aspects of my life. It has given me the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop and grow my lead­er­ship skills and al­lowed me to use those

skills in var­i­ous ways around the school and in the wider com­mu­nity. GHS has also helped grow my pas­sion for sports through the var­i­ous events and com­pe­ti­tions that are avail­able through the school. My big­gest growth dur­ing my time at GHS how­ever has to be my in­creased work ethic and pur­suit of suc­cess due to the con­stant sup­port and en­cour­age­ment from all my teach­ers over the past six years.

The wide range of sub­jects and knowl­edge­able teach­ers at Geral­dine has en­abled me to ex­pand my skills, knowl­edge and lead­er­ship skills to reach my full po­ten­tial. I have found the Out­door Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­gramme an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity to de­velop more in­ter­per­sonal skills and ex­plore more aspects of the out­doors. Com­bined with the Ar­gentina Over­seas ex­changes that opened up doors to a wider range of fu­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties. Along with this the on­go­ing sup­port and en­cour­age­ment from the staff and com­mu­nity has made it pos­si­ble for me to achieve to my full po­ten­tial.
