Fairholme College has been named the top school in the Darling Downs region, following six consecutive years of great results. But what is more rewarding, is knowing that our students have received the best start to life outside school.

Head Girl

Fairholme's Head Girl in 2019 has a family history at Fairholme that stretches back to 1919, with three women walking the Wirra Wirra street path before her. And while she is the first to be named Head Girl in the family, there'll be no shortage of advice - her sister, Lucy, was Head Day Girl in 2014 and her brother was Head Boy at Toowoomba Grammar. Maggie's plans for 2019 here: Read more ›
