Principal's Welcome

Thank you for choosing Joseph Banks Secondary College for your child’s secondary education. Whether you are a new or existing family we are confident that as a school community we will provide multiple opportunities for your child to achieve success in an innovative learning environment. Welcome to our College Community.

In preparation for the coming school year, our online welcome pack is available to assist in the transition of your child to the next year of school. In the interest of sustainability, hard copies will not be posted home. We do have a few printed copies in the office, so you are welcome to come into Main Reception if you would like a copy.
