Principal's Welcome

Having begun my teaching career at Wanniassa High School, I am extremely proud to be back as the Principal of this wonderful P – 10 school. It is a privilege for me once again to work with our students, our staff and our families to make our school a vibrant, dynamic and safe place to learn. My vision is to lead our school community to enable us to work together to achieve our goals.

Nurturing and educating our students to become confident, happy and well informed global citizens is our priority. We achieve this through providing an appealing and stimulating curriculum that is flexible and tailored to the needs of each and every student. We develop in each of our students a curious, enquiring mind, a desire for knowledge and a set of skills; linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, physical, emotional and social. Our passionate teachers ensure our students grow in confidence where an emphasis is placed throughout our quality programs on valuing future employability skills such as collaboration, teamwork, communication, critical thinking and problem solving.

We want our students to leave us having our school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience firmly embedded within their character and a growth mindset to strive for excellence underpinning all they do.

We are a friendly, vibrant, community minded school, who make decisions by always placing our students at the centre. We advocate to our staff and students to be actively involved in our community where wonderful partnerships are and continued to be created to further enrich the lives of our students.

There are many opportunities for parental involvement and I look forward to and welcome you to visit our school and talk to myself or my team about how we can provide the best possible educational environment for your child or children. I look forward to you becoming part of our wonderful school community.

Kind Regards,

Gary Lawson
