Welcome to our new Principal

It is with great honour that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Box Hill High School. The school enjoys a rich tradition of success that is the result of a collegial partnership between school staff, students and parents. This week I have had the pleasure of getting to know the amazing students and dedicated staff at Box Hill and one of the takeaways from these conversations has been the enthusiasm and pride for the school and the community. It is with that same enthusiasm and pride that I look forward to working with all members of the school community to continue to “strive for higher things” in future years.


My commitment to public education has been shaped over the last 29 years as a VCE English teacher, leader and most recently as Assistant Principal at a large public school in Melbourne’s western suburbs. As the Principal of Box Hill High School, my vision is to provide strong and supportive leadership that will facilitate differentiated learning and extra-curricular opportunities that enable students to develop character, cultivate their passions and explore the world outside the classroom. I am confident that together we can make Box Hill High School an even better place for students to learn, grow and take their place in a vastly changing society.


Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families in this role. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns or ideas you would like to discuss.
