Mrs Michelle Bourne


Personal message: All children have the right to a quality education. As a leader of a Catholic school my vision is one that includes high standards of learning, teaching and continuous school improvement. I enable learning which engages and empowers students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society, and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. I believe in providing rich resources, proven instructional strategies and engaging programs to promote student learning. I appreciate and celebrate the uniqueness of every child, each with distinct talents, interests, needs and differing learning styles.
