The family feel and sense of belonging and camaraderie is what’s keeping me here and it is also what gets me to school every single morning, it is such a special place to work.
3. How do you see this school as being different?
SCS values all diversity, and valuing differences creates a work environment where people can and want to do their best.
Also, the fact that our school is in the bush is absolutely wonderful, what a magical environment to come to work in.
At Southern Cross our learners do not simply receive an education, but also they are given the tools that they need to be successful in life.
