Greetings Parents and Families of Movelle Primary School.
My name is Karen Wood and I'm extremely happy to join the staff and students of Movelle as the new Principal. I'm very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, primary school experience. As the parent of two children, a daughter 17 and a son 14, I recognise the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every child's first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child's social, emotional, and academic needs are met. Before taking on the position as Principal, I spent 14 years working at Brookside College, where the school has grown from 60 students to now over 1000.
I believe that great schools are the results of great teachers, so my primary objective will be to ensure that every student is receiving high-quality instruction from every teacher at Movelle. In order to do this, I will be providing teachers with feedback on their instruction, access to professional development, and reaching out to parents for support with academic and behavioural concerns to ensure our students are prepared for the future.
I will be working closely with our Assistant Principal, Mrs Taverna to ensure that our students are academically challenged and have access to the social and emotional support critical to students needs.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with the Movelle families in this role! I look forward to engaging with the community daily and getting to know you all.Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.Regards,Karen Wood
