Principal Message

Welcome to Keira High School. It is my privilege to be providing the welcome to our website, as the current Principal of this fine school.

I acknowledge that our school is on Dharawal land and pay my respect to the elders, past, present and emerging. I acknowledge the Wodi Wodi people, as the traditional custodians of the land and recognise that learning has taken place here at the feet of Mt Keira for thousands of years. The students in our classes are the next generation of elders and it is important to provide them with the support, opportunities and connections to be a leader in the community.

As the Principal of the school, there are many responsibilities that come with the position. I consider the highest responsibility as providing an excellent place to learn and to give people opportunities for their own journey. I know that everyone is on their own journey, have different goals, and come from different backgrounds. A student’s learning journey lasts with us for only a few years, but we need to be providing people with options to take, problems to solve, strengths to discover and relationships to build.

After working at a number of different schools in South West Sydney and the Riverina, I am excited to be leading Keira High School. The strong traditions and strategies for strengthening successful students ensure that Keira High School is well placed to deliver excellent learning opportunities.

I love working with staff to help them support students and provide great possibilities for them.

It is great to work with parents and community members to discover about their children and how the community can work with our school,

Importantly, it is the students that inspire me to keep making improvements and giving them the chance to fulfil whatever their potential is.

Thank you for being part of our school community and working with us.
