"As Principal of Fahan School, I work with a team of dedicated professionals who provide excellence in education to girls in Tasmania, a hallmark of Fahan’s 80 years. I believe that there are many advantages that Fahan has to offer, including an outstanding record of achievement, its stunning location in magnificent grounds, small class sizes and the excellent relationships that develop as a consequence between the students and staff. 

I encourage all prospective parents to make an appointment with me so that I can show you our fantastic school in action."
