Principal's Welcome

​Welcome to Unity College, a Catholic & Uniting,​ P-12 College hosting over 1400 students. We have three distinct phases of learning – Junior Phase (Years P-6) Middle Phase (Years 7-9) and Senior Phase (Years 10-12). Throughout each phase we deliver high quality teaching and learning initiatives, as well as providing innovative contemporary resources to meet the diverse needs and capacities of learners in this rapidly changing society. 

The College priorities of Faith and Formation; Excellence in Teaching and Learning; and Student Wellbeing are pivotal in our focus to develop the WHOLE child. We understand each child is different and we continue to develop individual learning and wellbeing strategies to work through their unique challenges.​ 

Since commencing my role as Principal of Unity College in July 2018, I have experienced the warm welcome of a positive, caring and close knit community. I have been impressed by the quality and the deep commitment from staff to ensuring that student learning and student well-being is at the forefront of everything we do. 

I truly believe that I have the best job on the planet and enjoy the diversity of that the role brings, especially in a P-12 setting, as every day is different. From my arrival, I have found Unity College to be a place of genuine welcome and hospitality where learning is engaging and exciting and where positive relationships exist between students, staff and parents. 

I have a strong desire to instil a sense of hope and self-belief in young people, modelling a love of life and a love of learning to our staff and our students.

I hope to continue to nurture the many outstanding things that are already happening at Unity College and to take the College to the next level as it establishes its identity and matures from its infancy to a P-12 College with over 1400 students and facilities that would be the envy of many.​
