School principals

'This is an exciting time for students in the Far North. For the first time students will have access to a seamless pathway from school to their local university.'

Barry Courtney and Matt Denzin are drivers of academic success at Smithfield State High School and Trinity Beach State School.

They write:

‘This is an exciting time for students in the Far North. For the first time students will have access to a seamless pathway from school to their local university (James Cook University).

This means there will be more opportunities to excel: academically, gifted programs, music, sport, robotics, arts, marine biology as well as the many practical vocational options.

As primary and secondary school principals we are here to ensure our children are ready for their next step, whether it’s moving from year 2 to 3, beginning high school or going to university.

We are on track for the smooth transition of year 7 students moving from primary to secondary.  This transition work is just one aspect of our commitment to all our young people having the best environment for their academic, emotional and social development.

Smithfield State High School and Trinity Beach State School are committed to a learning culture of high expectations for all students, positive approaches to learning and behaviour and fostering aspiration, belief and success.'
