    It gives me great pleasure to welcome visitors to our website. As Principal I am extremely proud of Fairmont and its progress over the 37 years of its existence.

    Fairmont is a unique school that offers many of the traditions that one associates with a centre of excellence, yet is progressive in its vision for and realization of a happy and disciplined environment where our learners are encouraged to give their very best, primarily in academics and then supported by their involvement in the many sport and cultural activities that we offer.

    Please take some time to scroll through the many achievements that make us proud to be part of the Fairmont community.

    I thank our website administrators for the detailed and current information you can encounter.

    As you might observe we are a busy school that embraces the many opportunities that are made available to us. We are extremely grateful to be a school that offers our community the best we can offer and in return receives the support that enables the school to flourish in its many ways.

    Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your visual encounter.
