Principal’s welcome

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. Please have a look around to get to know us.

I am very proud to be the principal of this school, a position I have held since 2005. Prior to that I worked for 22 years in several secondary schools as a Deputy Principal and before that, an Art Teacher.

I love my job and I am lucky to work with talented and wonderful staff who aim to help every student succeed no matter what. There is also a dedicated band of parents who volunteer in the school in various ways including being on our P&C. Together we do great work that contributes to the success of our school. We welcome enquiries to work as staff or to enrol students at Heatley SS.

Since 2013 Heatley SS has worked with Bohlevale SS (a great school down the road) in our school improvement journey. In 2015 we worked together to write our school Strategic Plans and also wrote a joint agreement.

Pictured above (right to left) is me and principal of Bohlevale, Mrs Helen Morris holding up our joint agreement.

In 2016 we expanded this relationship to include Mundingburra SS. In 2018 this expanded further and Oonoonba SS joined with us. Now we are the "Fantastic Four"!

Together we meet once a term as combined schools Leadership Teams, curriculum planning teams and teacher teams. This collaboration will strengthen our work on ensuring every child achieves their best. Later this year on the October student free day, our four schools will hold a 'learning fair' at the Mercure Inn for our teachers.

extend an invitation to you to visit our school in person, especially on Friday mornings at 9am-9:30am when we hold our weekly assembly to show case student achievement in our 'Heatley Way'. Please come to the main office and introduce yourself. We hope you take up this offer and look forward to meeting you when you do.


The NRL trophy won by the Cowboys in 2015 briefly visited our school amidst much excitement. Matt Scott is our Adopt-a-Cowboy and he visits us throughout the football season.
