College Leadership

The College Executive is the senior leadership team of the College. Members of the College Executive are appointed by the Executive Principal. The College Executive comprises both primary and secondary staff leadership representatives and meets regularly to discuss and plan for a variety of issues within the College. A highlight of the year is our annual College Executive retreat. This is a time when the Executive team get away together as a team to pray, plan and focus on the year ahead. It is always a special time. It is a privilege leading such an experienced, inspirational team of leaders.

The operation of the College is led by our Head of Campus, Kerrie Neophytou with the leadership team made up of:

  • Kerrie Neophytou (Head of Campus)
  • Courtney Hutton (Head of Primary)
  • Elizabeth Parker (Head of Learning Support)
