Our School motto is 'Faith with Fortitude'. The School motto was chosen in the foundation year of Hornsby Girls’ High School.
At our school, FAITH is seen as a personal quality – namely faith in yourself, in the teachers and in the school. More generally, the concept of faith in human nature, in spite of human weakness, is also an important part of our belief.
FORTITUDE is strength, especially strength of character, even in the midst of adversity when we need to find the resilience to face all life’s challenges.
Our motto identifies two values, which should be lifelong ambitions. These values are as relevant today as they were in the founding days of the school.
