Headmaster's Welcome

As Collingwood’s fifth Headmaster, I am honoured and humbled to welcome you to our school. If you find yourself here as a prospective member of our community or perhaps as a lifer who has only known education the Collingwood way, I am equally excited to share our vibrant learning community with you.

I have the best job in the world because success happens when I can bring together three things: my love of children, my belief in the transformational power of an exceptional teacher, and my optimistic outlook on the magical time of change and opportunity that we live in today.
