Deputy Principal's Message
Garry Shearman, Deputy Principal
Sathya Sai College, Secondary Campus began in 2016, with the first Year 12 sitting for their Higher School Certificate in 2021. The Secondary Campus is located at Dungay, a ten minute drive from Murwillumbah in northern NSW, and is surrounded by the rolling hills and World Heritage listed escarpments of the Tweed Valley.
We are a small, values-based school with a Vision to develop our students’ character as they strive for Academic Excellence. The school’s core values are Love, Peace, Truth, Right Conduct and Non-Violence. These Values are taught in weekly EHV lessons (Education in Human Values) as well as incorporated into the Curriculum in all subject areas.
The school is accredited with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). Students in older years are eligible for their Record of Student Achievement (RoSA) and students who complete Year 12 will gain their Higher School Certificate and may be eligible for an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank), depending on their pattern of study. We also have students who study through alternate pathways such as school-based apprentice and traineeships.
We have extremely committed and passionate staff, who are always endeavouring to help our students fulfil the school motto of ‘Character Development with Academic Excellence’.
