Our staff

Get to know our school staff. We're all here to help.

Our professional, university-educated teachers encourage students to develop a love of learning and a desire to succeed. They maintain the highest integrity and concern for your child’s wellbeing.

The principal is responsible for the educational leadership and management of our school. If you would like to speak to the principal, please contact us to make an appointment.

Our school administrative staff can answer inquiries or direct you to the appropriate staff member for help.

Curriculum Reform

From 2023 to 2025, teachers will be given release time to focus on curriculum reform to help them effectively implement new syllabuses. All Assistant Principals will be off class for one day to week to work shoulder-to-shoulder with teachers. 

In addition, all staff will be released from class for two days per term to engage in high impact professional development to bolster curriculum knowledge.
