Welcome to our Sunshine Coast Grammar School website.  I have been honoured to be Principal of Sunshine Coast Grammar School since July 2012.  Prior to joining Grammar I was the Deputy Principal at Cannon Hill Anglican College in Brisbane for four years and also served a period as Acting Principal.

Prior to joining Cannon Hill Anglican College I served in a number of executive roles at St Margaret’s Anglican Girl’s School including Assistant Principal and Head of Boarding.

In 2011, I was awarded a Griffith University Professional Development Scholarship to undertake my Doctorate in Philosophy. Additionally, I am a member of the Australian College of Education and Australian Institute of Company Directors and I have presented at numerous conferences and events on Leadership and Innovation as well as in my own educational area of Drama and the Arts.

I believe it is important in my role to be involved in making a contribution to the wider business and educational community and as such I sit on:

  • the Sunshine Coast Committee for the Australian Institute of Company Directors
  • the University of the Sunshine Coast Educational Academic Advisory Committee

I also contribute to the Creative Schools Management Monthly Journal for Educators.

I am both personally and professionally invested in the school with both my children attending SCGS – my elder son in Secondary and my younger son in Primary.  Similarly, many of our staff send their children to SCGS.

I look forward to welcoming you into our great School community sometime in the future.
