Having being appointed as Principal in September 2016, I commenced as Principal of Port Vila International school at the start of the 2017 academic year. I was previously a Principal in Queensland, Australia of a large primary school. I have also held other large K – 12 teaching and learning roles in different colleges in Far North Queensland, Australia. Having completed my tertiary education in South Africa, with a BA (Human Movement Science) degree, Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate I went on to complete my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) (Human Resources Management) in 2012 through the Institute of Business in Australia. I am joined in Vanuatu with my twin boys who have commenced their learning journey at PVIS.
Academic excellence, in a safe and supportive learning environment, is what keeps me passionate about providing a high-quality education for all students. I am very excited to be working with an outstanding team of educators and look forward to continuing to work with all PVIS stakeholders to ensure our school continues to offer a premium education for Port Vila families.
My major focus areas for the school over the next couple of years are the following areas:
1. Senior Secondary pathways
2. Implementation of rigorous teaching and learning frameworks,
based on the Australian Curriculum, for K – 12
3. High standards of early childhood education.
4. ICT integration and 21st century pedagogical approaches
PVIS is a wonderful school and it is a pleasure to be part of the PVIS team. Thank you for visiting our website and please feel free to contact our friendly school for any further information or enrolment enquires.
