I am very proud to be the Principal of Wantirna Primary School. The sense of being connected to a real community is evident in the strong relationships which are formed between Wantirna families making our school unique and able to cater for all students. All staff are committed to our students’ academic, social and emotional development and the small class sizes ensure each teacher appreciates the needs and interests of each child. Families choose Wantirna Primary School because they know that their children have greater opportunities than many other schools. Individuals are involved in Student Leadership (Student Voice and Agency), participation in Sporting Teams beyond District level, in the Whole School Production and the STEM Design Challenge. In 2019, I look forward to continuing to support the students to engage with the curriculum, explore new ideas and experiences and excel academically, in the sporting arena and in all forms of the arts.
