Please allow me to acknowledge the amazing work that has been done by those Principals and leadership teams who have gone before me. Springfield Lakes is a great school and a school of choice for those in the local area. Children here enjoy world class education delivered by dedicated and caring staff. I believe it takes a village to raise a child and the community attached to Springfield Lakes is both caring and passionate about children's education.
Our school mascot is Coop – the Peace Dove – who espouses the key message to our students: “We are cooperative, peaceful and respectful".
Quality education is allowed to occur in an environment where behaviours are positive and a mutual level of respect exists between students, staff and community. A Positives Behaviours for Learning (PBL) framework operates within our school and aims to support children in making sensible choices allowing both themselves and others to learn.
Parents, carers and family members are encouraged to engage with our children on their learning journey. Every child is different and every child learns at a different rate and in different ways. The home life that supports a child's learning journey is one that allows even greater success. I urge all families to please read with their children, to know what their child needs to do to improve and to communicate with the classroom teacher and school when support is needed at home. It truly does take a community to raise and support a child.
As Principal of Springfield Lakes State School I am excited at the prospect of ongoing enhancements to our school in terms of school grounds and facilities, consistency of practice in terms of world class teaching and learning and most importantly, improved learning outcomes in the key areas of literacy and numeracy.
I am looking forward to my career at Springfield Lakes and look forward to meeting with positive and engaged members of the school community.
Yours in Education,
