Principal - Foundation to Year 6

It’s a privilege to serve the community of St Jakobi. Leading and managing a team of committed professionals each and every day comes with great rewards and sometimes challenges.

It is always important in whatever vocation you are in to always remind yourself why you do it. A well-worn phrase – ‘the kids are our future’ comes to mind. We are on a mission to guide and support our children to be the best they can be and to realise their potential. Having spent 20 years in Lutheran learning communities, my first students are now in their 30s and making their way in the world. When families and learning communities embark on the journey together, great things happen.

Enjoy browsing our pages that give a snapshot of who we are and what we are about. Feel free to make contact for an interview for your family today.

Director - Childcare & ELC

Family is at the heart of St Jakobi Campus Childcare and ELC and we believe that you become a part of our family during the time you spend with us. We pride ourselves on developing a homely Service where families feel comfortable.

Our professional team of Early Childhood Educators are dedicated to providing high quality education and care for your children in learning spaces that support children to be independent, resilient, capable and curious about their world. 

Our Service Philosophy is built on a culture of community based on the Reggio Emilia principles, that children who feel a sense of belonging to a supportive community develop a strong sense of self to become a person of influence in their world. It is my aim to develop a partnership with your family during this journey. I encourage you to book in for a tour to experience the difference of St Jakobi Campus.
