Beeliar Primary School first opened its doors in 1999 and was co-located on the same site as St Luke’s Primary School. This joint public – private venture was a first in Western Australia. A few years later, St Luke’s left the site and Beeliar PS took over the vacated rooms.
Since then, the community of Beeliar has undertaken tremendous growth and change. I first experienced the school in 2011 when I was relieving Principal for a term. I was given the opportunity to come back to the school in 2022 and I am very proud to lead a school of dedicated and professional staff, wonderful students, and to be part of a strong, dynamic local community.
My focus is really quite simple. Students and their needs come first. I support this by providing the very best evidence-based programs, having absolutely dedicated staff, and ensuring that the school is appropriately resourced.
Education continuously evolves and changes, in terms of program delivery, innovative practise and the increasing influence of information and communication technology. Beeliar PS aligns itself with best practice as this will always be key to progressing student achievement and progress as well as individual wellbeing and happiness.
We are fortunate to have strong support from our community and I look forward to welcoming new students into our school.
