It is with great pleasure I introduce myself as the new Principal of Thomas Becket Catholic School.

One of the things that stood out to me when I came to visit Thomas Becket for the first time was the eagerness of your children and the commitment of the staff here at Thomas Becket. I have joined the school at an exciting time, after a summer of vastly improved and encouraging results we are at the beginning of a journey to build on the positive outcomes for the students and encourage them to develop to be the best they can be.

There are exciting opportunities that lie ahead and I will keep you up to date on all of these developments as they happen. At Thomas Becket one of our aims will be to develop a curriculum that maintains a creative balance between preparation for the work place and development of the person.

As a school we have a commitment to enrich the student through catholic education. I look forward to working with you all so that the very best outcomes are realised for all of our students.
