I am passionate about ensuring all students grow up to be compassionate world citizens that are critical thinkers, and ones that value lifelong learning. I am very proud to work at Newport Lakes Primary School and help support our wonderful staff in providing an inclusive and engaging learning environment for our amazing and varied students.We place our students’ wellbeing and learning at the centre, with a focus on developing the whole child, which includes providing support and extension as well as a terrific selection of specialist subjects and extracurricular activities.

The collegiate feel that the school has can be attributed to a positive school staff culture, and this permeates into our classrooms to ensure that all students reach their potential in inclusive, dynamic learning spaces.
