2018 is Peter's 9th Year as Principal of Flagstaff Hill R-7 School and he has just commenced a second tenure as Principal.
Prior to being at Flagstaff Hill R-7 School, Peter was the Principal at Paradise PS, Raukkan Aboriginal & Cook Area schools.
Peter’s ongoing commitment and tenure has provided and will continue to provide the school with a clear learning focus, a strong commitment to consistency and finally his great enthusiasm for the continual improvement and progress of each student, staff member and parent who is a part of the school community.
It is Peter's belief that students' success and improvement in education is achieved when the school community is focused on what is important and individually take ownership for our learning. As principal, Peter also believes in setting high expectations, both academically and behaviourally, for all students.
Peter leads the school to use the learning improvement framework of the Art and Science of Teaching to:
- Establishing and maintaining a safe and organised learning environment.
- Ensuring learning is visible, consistent and clear.
- Teach learners to learn more deeply and effectively.
