Faber est suae quisque fortunae

Welcome to our school

Since 1849, Fortians have been encouraged to be the makers of their own destiny, supported by our motto, faber est suae quisque fortunae. This motto underpins the values and expectations of the school. The school exit profile articulates the vision for student achievement. Successful Fortians:

  • achieve academic and creative excellence
  • develop skills and talents across a broad range of areas
  • become reflective and independent learners responsible for their own growth
  • develop emotional resilience, self-confidence and the ability to collaborate and communicate effectively
  • develop a commitment to fairness and equity, and a recognition of their responsibility to the wider community and a strong sense of social justice.

The Fort Street community believes that every student and teacher should be challenged to learn and continually improve in a respectful, inclusive, engaging and high expectation environment.
