After more than 25 years of establishing, leading and developing one the region’s most respected and high-performing private schools, Dr Lyn Bishop OAM will step down from her role of Principal in 2021.

Having successfully led the College through the challenges of COVID-19 in 2020, Dr Bishop believes the time is right to hand over the leadership to a new Principal who can take the College to its next stage of development. 

We have seen incredible change under Dr Bishop’s leadership over the years. The College has:

  • continued to promote its Vision Statement of “Traditional Values and Progressive Thinking for Quality Learning and Living” throughout its 25 years of operation
  • delivered on its Mission Statement of “providing a quality educational experience in an environment that encourages and enables our students to succeed in a constantly changing world”
  • imbued all stakeholders with the College Values 
  • consistently promoted the College’s philosophy of “Love, Laughter and Learning”
  • ensured the College’s Student Exit Outcomes became the focal point of every teacher’s praxis from Kindergarten through to Year 12
  • clearly promoted education as a partnership between the home and the school 
  • become a leading independent, co-educational, non-denominational College for children from 15 months of age through to Year 12
  • grown from 110 students and six staff members in 1997, to more than 1,400 students and 300 staff members today, a number of whom are foundation staff and College alumni appointments 
  • ensured innovative national and global connections, and the integration of cutting-edge technology and infrastructure to create a world-class learning environment for students. 

Through a true team effort, the College has also established world-class facilities and research-driven initiatives, such as the LINQ Precinct and ArtScapes, to help students become the entrepreneurs, business owners, engineers and designers of tomorrow.

With these strong foundations, a deeply connected community and a thriving culture, the College will continue to provide students with opportunities to achieve the extraordinary, now and into the future. 

The College’s Board has commenced a comprehensive recruitment process to find an outstanding candidate for the new Principal role. 

We wish Dr Bishop all the very best in her future endeavours and look forward to welcoming a new Principal who will embody and uphold the College’s Vision, Mission and Values, and expand on the initiatives Dr Bishop and her team have already established.
