Principal's Welcome

I am privileged to be the Principal at Glenfield Intermediate School and look forward to working with you to meet the needs of your child and the community.

I am passionate about students striving for personal excellence and ensuring that they succeed as individuals. This means focusing on the whole child, ensuring that they succeed academically, socially, and culturally.

I believe in providing opportunities for your child to discover more about themselves and to develop the skills and attributes they will need in an ever changing world.

I am also passionate about developing quality teachers through the Inquiry process where teachers reflect and refine their teaching pedagogy constantly.

I focus on using and accessing all available resources to inspire, challenge and empower staff, students and the wider community to work collaboratively to promote student achievement and well-being.

I am committed to fostering a learning environment that all students are excited about and proud to be a part of.
