Principal’s message

TRISTAN

Dear Parents and Guardians, Westall Secondary College’s students, teachers and parents make up a culturally diverse learning community.  Respect and trust are key elements of our community.  Our aim is to ensure our students have the skills and knowledge to achieve their personal best. Our teachers strive to build strong positive relationships with our students and are focused on developing and implementing programs that meet our students' diverse needs. I would invite you to visit the College and to come for a tour with one of our Senior staff.  A walk around our College will give you a sense of what we are striving to achieve. I look forward to seeing you in the near future.   Tristan Lanarus Acting Principal
