Founded in 1935, by Miss Isobel Travers and Miss Audrey Morphett, Fahan School offers programs from Kindergarten to Year 12. Miss Travers and Miss Morphett believed that young women could achieve anything they wanted to. The ideals and aims of our founders were reflected in the motto they chose, “Light Come Visit Me.” Light was not just sunlight but rather “enlightenment”, which is the purpose of education.
“Light destroys darkness, reveals truth, graces good deeds; it is creative” Miss Isobel Travers
