A Message From Our Principal

“In 2018, I had the privilege of joining Canning Vale College as Principal.

At Canning Vale College, we are committed to “Creating Futures.”

 We support every student to engage, progress and develop throughout their time at our College so that they can transition to their chosen post school options and contribute responsibly and positively to their community and society as a whole.

We are the leading school of choice in our local area and our daily focus is on care and concern for our students, diverse and high quality teaching and learning, maintaining and building connection to our community and local networks, enabling us to provide differentiation of curriculum delivery and positive outcomes for all students.

 My 40+ years of service in a wide range of country and metropolitan schools, including the Pilbara and Goldfields, has provided me with a wealth of experience. This has been in a variety of areas including Aboriginal education, culturally and linguistically diverse communities as well as extensive Student Support experience. I believe all students have the potential to make a positive contribution to 21st century society and that schools of today must provide a differentiated curriculum that meets the needs and aspirations of all students, ensuring success for all.”
