Meet the Teachers

Members of the teaching staff at STAHS are a consistent source of energy, inspiration and focus for our girls. Each teacher pursues with enthusiasm the school’s aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, giving every girl individual attention and guidance as she grows physically and intellectually through her teenage years and into a young adult. Whether preparing girls for exams, inspiring confidence in the arts, or encouraging girls to do their best at sports, our teachers offer one hundred per cent commitment to the school, and recognise the important role they play in ensuring that the school operates according to its values – Scholarship, Adventure and Integrity.
