The principal is responsible for the educational leadership and management of our school. If you would like to speak to the principal, please contact us to make an appointment.

Our school administrative staff can answer inquiries or direct you to the appropriate staff member for help.

Our staff

We are very fortunate to have wonderful staff, all committed to the betterment of students' life skills, vocational opportunities, and academic pathways. Our school enables a range of professional learning opportunities for our staff due to our diverse educational program. 

The town of Young is a thriving community catering to a broad range of personal interests. The combination of personal and professional opportunities, as well as the town's proximity to Canberra, makes Young an ideal consideration for relocation.
