New Principal

From Richard Costi - Education Director

It is with great delight to announce that Mr Rob Warncken has won the Coromandel Valley Primary School Principal position for the next 5 years and 3 terms.

Rob is currently the Deputy Principal at Craigburn Primary School. While every school is unique there are some real similarities between the two schools and in fact, the communities intersect to some degree.

Rob is also known to Coromandel Valley as he was Assistant Principal from 2008 until 2014 under Chris Bayly. Since that time he has been Deputy and Assistant Principal at Craigburn PS. This experience gives Rob a really strong background and he is well and truly ready to take up a Principalship.  

Further to that, it was the Coromandel Valley Principal position that would be his first choice, so we know he will be fully committed to the school and community. Rob has an excellent record in leading literacy, inquiry, improvement planning, ICT and working the community. Rob is deeply committed to continue the excellent work of the team at Coromandel Valley and the key directions of IB and Cultures of Thinking. Rob will add to the excellent practice in place.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Mike Shaw as Acting principal in term 1 together with Deputy Principal Kat Morgan. Mike and Kat have steered a steady ship and continued  the very good work in what has been a tumultuous term with all the COVID twists and turns. I also take one last opportunity to thank Liz Pelling for her wonderful leadership over the years and she is continuing similar work at Colonel Light Gardens.

So thanks to Mike, Kat, Liz and welcome Rob. 

Thanks also to Sam Neville GC chair, and Juli Bryan teacher, who were part of the selection process.
