From the Principal

Welcome to Fairholme College and our second century as a provider of quality girls’ education in beautiful Toowoomba. I wish that it were possible to describe our school in text or in photographs but I believe that our College is more special than words can capture and more diverse than pictures might show.

We are proudly a college of the Presbyterian Church in Queensland, an all-girls’ K – 12 day and boarding school with a co-educational kindergarten that seeks excellence for each and every student. Whether our endeavours are academic, cultural, sporting or service-based, we approach them with enormous spirit, passion and determination. Our sense of community and care for each other draws from our Christian heart and we seek ways to demonstrate this through both small and larger acts of service.

Whilst I am sure that you will enjoy a virtual online tour of our school, I recommend a visit during term time on any day of the week. I am a firm believer that by walking into a school its essence is palpable and that the essence of Fairholme is worth exploring further. It would be wonderful to meet with you in person.

Warm regards

Dr Linda Evans | EdD, MA, BEdSt, Dip T, MACE, MACEL

Why choose a girls’ school?
For a thousand great reasons, we believe! The Australasian Alliance of Girls Schools captures these reasons succinctly, stating that all girls’ schools provide: academic advantage, leadership opportunities, positive role models, a tailored curriculum, countless opportunities, counteraction of negative influences and the notion of global citizenship. See for further information about the power of an all girls’ learning environment.
