Founded in 1935, by Miss Isobel Travers and Miss Audrey Morphett, Fahan School offers programs from Kindergarten to Year 12. Miss Travers and Miss Morphett believed that young women could achieve anything they wanted to. The ideals and aims of our founders were reflected in the motto they chose, “Light Come Visit Me.” Light was not just sunlight but rather “enlightenment”, which is the purpose of education.
“Light destroys darkness, reveals truth, graces good deeds; it is creative” Miss Isobel Travers
"What do you think about teaching in an all-girls school?" In 10 years as principal of Fahan School, that’s the question I have been asked most frequently.
On Friday 1 June, Year 12 girls at Fahan School raised over $10,000 to support their chosen charities, the Pancare Foundation and the Freya Fund, at their fundraising event.
Fahan School entered 43 students in the All Schools Mountain Bike Championship at Glenorchy on Friday 25 May; the biggest team from any school in Tasmania.
On Monday 30 April, Fahan School welcomed staff and students back for the second term of 2018.
