As Principal, leading a highly effective school council is fundamental to achieving strong, shared outcomes for the school, the students and community. I am passionate about working collaboratively with the council to discuss important school matters, to make decisions that reflect the needs of the Hopetoun community, and positively lead our school into the future - Penne Metcalf, Principal
