Meet the Principal

As Principal of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School I wish to extend a warm welcome to all our families.  We are a Christ-Centred community that strives to foster the development of the whole child through faith, collaboration and culture. With your child’s education being our highest priority, we take pride in providing your child with the best possible educational program. Our highly qualified and passionate staff is dedicated to providing opportunities for all students to learn and achieve their potential. With your support, we will accomplish this.

We are proud of the state of the art school we have developed and the great learning experiences and opportunities we offer our students.  Our school values ‘Compassion, Courage and Creativity’, underpin all that we do in a supportive and caring environment.  Our Lady Star of the Sea focuses on quality teaching and learning, with a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy, the Arts, Science, Mental Toughness and Units of Inquiry with relevant content to prepare the students for life in the 21st century.

At OLSS, we believe that communication and cooperation between home and school are essential elements for a successful school experience that promotes optimal student learning. We want your child to feel loved, nurtured and safe at OLSS. Parents are encouraged to visit our school, maintain regular contact with your child’s teacher and participate in our various school activities.

As your principal, I am always available to meet with you regarding your child. Please feel free to contact me at any time. We look forward to guiding and sharing your child’s learning journey and welcome your involvement and contribution to our school community.
