Principal's Message

I am excited to be part of the Parktone Primary School community. I look forward to meeting students, staff and parents and getting to know each individually. I love a chat, keen to share humourous stories about my family (to my boy’s horror) and myself and to spend time with each class reading my favourite storybooks. Most importantly, I look forward to telling others with great pride, that I am the principal of one of Melbourne’s most successful schools-Parktone Primary School.


I have come from Sandringham East Primary School, which is a similar size school to Parktone. I look forward to being part of the stimulating and challenging teaching and learning environment of Parktone, where individual students are supported and encouraged to develop their talents, build resilience and confidence, and have respect for themselves and others. Understanding and driving ‘Leader in Me’ -Stephen Covey’s ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People, is going to be an exciting time in my own personal journey as an educator.


I look forward to being part of the Parktone Primary School community that is ‘Always Moving Forward’.
