One of the areas of emphasis at Waterfall College is maintaining a consistent, diligent work rate. This is implemented through the dedicated team of subject specialist teachers, who constantly guide and encourage students inside and outside the classroom. Our school motto, ‘Per ardua ad perfectum’ meaning ‘Through hard work, excellence is achieved’ is borne out through the academic discipline applied at Waterfall College.

Technology is an important tool to build learning at Waterfall College. Classrooms are fitted with data projectors and students are encouraged to research on their devices according to the needs of each subject.
