Principal's Welcome

Principal’s WelcomePrincipal SMv2

On behalf of our School community, I welcome you to Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School.

Lindisfarne has a proven reputation for providing quality education across our two campuses in South Tweed and Terranora.

Throughout my career I have been a passionate believer in the benefits of a co-educational learning environment for young people and the strong preparation and base that this provides students for the world that they live and work in.

As an Anglican Grammar School, our values of Wisdom, Compassion and Respect are at the heart of our school and form the foundations of our teaching and learning.

I believe that for young people to reach their potential we must value the total educational program and the holistic development of students. This includes focusing on the cognitive, physical, spiritual, creative, personal and social development of the students of the school and providing learning opportunities within the classroom, across the curriculum, beyond the classroom and beyond the school.

It incorporates the learning, knowledge, understandings and skills gained from co-curricular engagement, developing the God-given passions, gifts, talents and interests of each student.

My focus as Principal includes valuing each student and ensuring that 'every child matters every day.'
