BACK to school for the start of term three was a historic and significant day for the teaching staff and pupils at Waterfall Preparatory as new headmaster Brad Cooper was officially welcomed.

Cooper is a respected and well-known member of the Upper Highway community and is described as a caring man with a heart for education and family.
His experience and leadership will form a key foundation for the school’s future, which provides quality, affordable independent education.

“As I begin to steer this new school we hope to meet the personal academic and emotional needs of each child and provide an environment for each child to express their uniqueness and qualities,” said Brad.
“We intend to be a school that creates family space and provides opportunities for the family unit to be celebrated and enhanced.”

Cooper said one of his key objectives is to challenge and investigate trends in education and to make decisions on what is right for children and families in today’s world.

The team at Waterfall Preparatory School are delighted to welcome Cooper as his appointment comes at a critical time as building on the newest section of the co-educational school, Grade 4 to Grade 7, will be complete in September.
The modern school facility in Hillcrest is situated on a 48-acre campus adjacent to the Valley of 1000 Hills with breathtaking views over the valley.

“The location of our school is significant, we are blessed with the space and beauty on this campus. We are a motivated and focused team who genuinely believe in our boys and girls and appreciate that their dreams are unique to them.” - Supplied
