It is with the greatest pleasure and privilege that I head this amazing school, surrounded by wonderful staff, students, and their families.
My Springbank career began not as a teacher, but a student. My parents founded Springbank School in 1996, and at fourteen years of age I was a foundation student alongside fourteen other students making up the entire school roll.
My parents created a learning environment that was engaging and supportive, with a focus on excellence and character development for children across the Mid-North. The founding vision, to provide a high-quality learning experience where students would be ‘Learning for Life’, is now defined in the three core values of Capability, Character, and Confidence. I am extremely proud to be continuing my parents’ vision of offering the highest quality education in a genuinely safe, supportive environment. Our students continue to grow in confidence as they strive for personal excellence, and they are proud to celebrate their achievements alongside one another.
A complete education is multi-faceted. We aim to develop academic, social, and physical capabilities and build on a range of character strengths, whilst allowing children to grow into their own skin, becoming confident in themselves as unique individuals and ready for their world beyond school. I also believe that a person’s childhood years should be some of the greatest, happiest, and most fulfilling, memorable years of their life.
I extend a warm welcome to new families who are considering joining the wider Springbank family. I look forward to meeting you and witnessing your children thrive in our exceptional environment.
