Principal’s Welcome

Footscray Primary School is an international school implementing the Primary Years Program. At the heart of learning is inquiry and the development of young, curious minds that have a strong desire to grow.

Dear Students, Staff, Families and Community members,

My name is Christine Purcell and I will be the Acting Principal at Footscray Primary School for Term Three and Term Four 2019. I would like to thank you in advance for this privileged opportunity of being a part of your delightful community and I’m very excited to meet you all in the upcoming weeks. As Acting Principal, I will continue to support the magnificent work the students and staff are already implementing at Footscray Primary and continue to build upon the school/home relationship to ensure that all students are achieving success within their learning.

Currently, I am the Assistant Principal at Footscray City Primary School and previously I was the Principal at Tungamah Primary School for 4 years. I have had a wide range of experience in a number of different schools and I am excited to learn all about your school community.

Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity, I do not take lightly the responsibility and honour it is to be in this position. I look forward to meeting you all and developing a valued and positive relationship with you and your child at Footscray Primary School.
Warm Regards,

Christine Purcell

Acting Principal
