School Plan

Principals in NSW public schools operate in the context of a strong public education system. The School Management Plan 2018 – 2020 articulates three strategic directions and key reforms that are being implemented to support every learner in all NSW public schools. It links with the State Plan and the DEC five year strategic plan.

School Plan

The FSHS school plan has been developed in consultation with staff, students, and parents through various focus group activities and a community forum. The initial framework of the plan was developed at the annual executive conference. Parent, student and teacher representatives provided valuable input to the development of the three strategic directions.

faber est quisque fortunae

This motto (each person is a maker of their own destiny) underpins the values and expectations of this great school. Our academically selective school is proudly multicultural; a school which encourages and celebrates diversity, tolerance, acceptance and individuals working together to form a vibrant and questioning community.

The school exit profile articulates the vision for student achievement. Successful Fortians will have:

  • maximised their academic potential
  • developed individual skills and talents across a variety of areas
  • developed learning strategies to equip them to be independent, self-motivated and life-long learners
  • developed emotional resilience, self-reliance, interpersonal skills, the capacity to connect to others and leadership potential
  • recognised their responsibilities to the wider community
  • developed a strong sense of social justice as well as a commitment to fairness and equity.
