Principal Appointment

After an extensive recruitment process it is with great pleasure that, on behalf of School Council, I announce Nicole Richards has been appointed Principal of Elwood Primary School. (Please note that the Department of Education require that the appointment is provisional for two weeeks).

Nicole will commence immediately as Principal and is well placed to ensure a smooth transition from our previous Principal; Rob Csoti, having just completed an extended period as Acting Principal and previously Assistant Principal of EPS for the past 8 years. 

I had the privilege of announcing Nicole’s appointment to the staff this morning. Their immediate excitement and delight is a clear sign of the strong respect they have for her as a leader and educational specialist who will continue to drive exceptional outcomes for the children of Elwood Primary. 

On a personal note, I am delighted to be working with Nicole as someone who is passionate about the importance that community plays in the total education of our children and look forward to taking some of our key programs to the next stage. 

Please take the opportunity to congratulate Nicole next time you see her in the yard or serving egg and bacon rolls at the market!
