Principal and staff profiles

Welcome from our Principal

Mrs Michelle Hunt, School Principal

As the Principal of Department Primary School, I’d like to welcome you to our friendly school community. Here, we all work together to make sure our school is as supportive of student learning and development as possible.

I’m excited to lead this school because of its reputation for community involvement and its commitment to learning outcomes. I also get to work with a great team who are just as motivated as I am in promoting positive behaviour in the classroom.

I’m passionate about making sure every child has the opportunity to succeed. I make sure we can adapt and evolve our approach to teaching. We embrace technology and allow students to explore emerging fields within their learning.

I encourage discussion and feedback to make sure we’re meeting your child’s needs.
