PHSS is a small rural high school on the north end of the Sunshine Coast. PHSS serves a community with a cross-section of families socio-economically. We are well supported by community members who volunteer in various ways, including: coaching sports, running our hot lunch program, assisting in boat building for the annual April Tools Boat Race, and leading our Exploration blocks. These experiences help create and keep the connection to a very supportive community. Our student population includes 36% with First Nations ancestry. We are working to increase cultural awareness at PHSS by weaving the Aboriginal Curriculum through multiage, cross curricular, class and school wide projects and field experiences.
