Principal's Welcome

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Wadalba Community School Community,

It is a privilege to have been appointed the new Principal of Wadalba Community School. Having served as the Principal of Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College Berkeley Vale Campus for the last 7 years, I am eager to bring my experience and passion for education to this vibrant community in which I work and live.

The warm welcome and support I have received from staff, students, and families has been truly heartening. It is clear that Wadalba Community School is a place where strong connections foster a thriving learning environment. My primary goal as Principal is to ensure the continued growth and success of our school. I am committed to maintaining a safe, inclusive, and innovative learning environment where every student can achieve academic, social, and emotional success. 

We have high expectations for attendance and behaviour which are key to facilitating an environment conducive to learning and teaching. Regular attendance is crucial as it directly correlates with successful academic outcomes and social development. I encourage all students to attend school consistently and punctually, embracing every learning opportunity that comes their way.

Similarly, maintaining high standards of behaviour is essential. A respectful, disciplined, and focused approach to learning benefits not only the individual student but also the entire school community. Together, we can create a setting where respectful interactions and positive behaviours are the norms, thereby enhancing the learning experience for everyone.

Collaboration between teachers, students, parents, and the broader community is vital in achieving these goals. I look forward to working closely with all stakeholders to ensure that our collective efforts contribute to a vibrant and successful school environment.

I am excited about the journey ahead and am confident that together, we can continue to build upon the strong foundation of Wadalba Community School. I look forward to meeting each of you and working collaboratively to provide an exceptional educational experience for our students.
