Principal - Foundation to Year 6

Welcome to St Jakobi! As principal, I'm thrilled to lead a team of exceptional educators who share a passion for nurturing young minds. Our school is more than just a place of learning; it's a vibrant community where every child is valued, celebrated, and empowered to thrive.

We believe in fostering a love of learning that extends beyond the classroom walls. Our approach is all about hands-on experiences, creative exploration, and meaningful connections. Every activity, lesson, and interaction is designed to inspire curiosity, build confidence, and ignite a lifelong passion for discovery.

At St Jakobi we're committed to developing the whole child – academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Our dedicated staff go above and beyond to create a supportive and inclusive environment where every student feels heard, respected, and valued for who they are.

We believe in the power of every child's voice and their ability to make a difference in the world. Through collaborative projects, leadership opportunities, and community initiatives, we empower our students to be changemakers and problem-solvers, ready to take on the challenges of an ever-changing world.

I am incredibly proud to lead such a remarkable team of educators who are dedicated to unlocking the full potential of every student. Together, we are shaping compassionate, confident, and resilient individuals who are prepared to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.

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.
