Deputy Principal – People and Culture
It has been such a pleasure getting to know so many students, staff and even some parents in my first weeks at Shellharbour Anglican College. I feel incredibly grateful and honoured to have been so warmly welcomed into the role of Deputy Principal – People and Culture across Prep to Year 12.
As our College grows and develops, I will actively promote a coherent growth-focused Christian learning culture. Maintaining a strong whole College focus, I will work closely with the Principal, Deputy Principal – Strategy and Innovation, Heads of School and executive to support and provide opportunities to strengthen the sense of whole-College community. I will lead teams supporting staff and student wellbeing and provide oversight of the professional growth of our teaching and ancillary staff. The College’s service learning program, co-curricular opportunities, sports offerings and off-site experiences will be areas I lead. I’ll also be working hard in the background to make sure our policies and procedures, risk management systems and compliance obligations are meeting or exceeding requirements.
Moving from Sydney’s Northern Beaches really isn’t so difficult when the beautiful green hills and stunning coastline of the south coast awaits. I love a dip in the ocean or a coastal run, so exploring Killalea State Park has been very gratifying! Also, having spent the past 8 years as Head of Junior School at St Luke’s Grammar School in Dee Why, I am pleased to remain within the Anglican Schools Corporation where I have found encouragement and inspiration as a Christian educational leader.
I’m grateful to God for this opportunity to build new relationships with staff, parents and students and to invest in the lives of the amazing young people of Shellharbour Anglican College. I look forward to meeting you soon.
