Stronger... Together



Difficulties are just things to overcome

Shackleton prides themselves on creating a community where everyone feels part of one big family. Students in Shackleton respect our core values, beliefs and all work together to create a safe environment where our students support each other. We are proud to call ourselves Shackleton Sharks, and celebrate our successes as a house in our weekly assemblies. Our motto "difficulties are just things to overcome,” is a testament to our students who show determination, resilience and put 100% into everything they do.

Shackleton students have many personal achievements that we are very proud of. We have also been successful in many housing competitions. Some of our achievements are:

  • 3x Winners of the House Shield
  • Sports Day Champions
