South Fremantle Senior High School

Successes & Achievements

Our son has enjoyed his time at SFSHS. We believe he has achieved results in all subjects that are enhanced due to his participation in the Marine Studies program …The staff that organise and contribute to the courses are exceptional. They have freely given up time, not only within school hours, but also hours and days of their personal time. This has been exceptional… My family and [student’s name] thank the staff of SFSHS.
