We are very fortunate that both our Primary and Secondary Schools occupy one site, allowing for valuable links between both schools. A great many of our Primary students transfer directly to the Secondary school so it is really important that there is productive continuity in the learning across all of our age stages. The Cross-Campus Principal for School Development seeks to ensure that there is cohesion, consistency and cooperation across the Primary and Secondary schools.

Other leadership positions which are cross-campus in scope include the Assistant Principal for Professional Learning (CPD), the Assistant Principal for Technology Integration, the Assistant Principal for Extra Curricular Activities and Sports, and the Head of Libraries. Together the Cross Campus Principal and the Cross Campus team work with colleagues across both schools to serve the best interests of the students and their continuing education.
