Principal’s Welcome

Muirden College, established in 1900, has provided quality education in a flexible learning environment for over 100 years. Muirden offers subjects specifically aimed at University entrance.


Muirden provides a friendly, positive work situation which encourages teachers and students to work together. Our teachers are dedicated, highly qualified professionals who bring with them a variety of educational and personal experiences and enjoy working with young people.


At Muirden we acknowledge and accept individual differences. We provide a supportive setting which encourages students to develop a responsible and positive approach to their work and the school community.


It is our aim to remain a small school community of between 100 and 120 full-time equivalent enrolments. This means that our classes are much smaller than in traditional schools. Class sizes average between 10 and 15 students allowing teachers more time to work with students on an individual basis .


There are no extracurricular activities, or any of the many ‘extras’ which in traditional schools can absorb student’s and teacher’s time and attention.


I would be happy to speak to you over the phone or in an interview if you wish to know more about our College. I am proud to be involved with the College, and look forward to meeting the needs of our students.


You may contact me by telephone: 08 8212 4342.
