St Paul’s welcomes new Principal

Date: May 1, 2018

St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School recently welcomed a new Principal to the school, Mr Cameron Herbert.

Cameron has come from Western Australia and was previously the Principal of St Mark’s Anglican Community School, a large coeducational K-12 school in the northern suburbs of Perth.

Cameron has thirty years of diverse experience as an educator in Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania. Prior to becoming a Principal, he taught English at The Southport School on the Gold Coast for six years, where he held the positions of Dean of Students (Years 10-12) and Associate Dean of Teaching and Learning. Cameron also has experience as a Secondary Head of House, Economics Teacher, Middle School Teacher, Primary Teacher and Head of Junior School.

Cameron said “I was attracted to St Paul’s by the school’s values, strategic directions and pursuit of excellence. St Paul’s standing as an independent, Anglican school that grew from a rural community’s dream was also appealing to me as someone who grew up as part of a Christian family in a rural community. It is my hope that, as Principal, I will be able to contribute significantly in these areas and help St Paul’s to continue confidently on its path, going from strength to strength as a leading regional school in Australia.”

In an address to students and staff, Cameron talked about his family and his background and why he chose to pursue a career in education.

He thanked previous Principal Ms Lisa Moloney for her seven year leadership, as well as other staff and has been busy meeting and getting to know students.

Cameron is looking forward to developing a deeper understanding of the school’s people and culture.

“By taking the time to develop a deep understanding of a school’s people and culture, I believe that the Principal is well placed to lead astutely and assuredly into the future.”
