Welcome to the second semester. My name is Paul Pallister and I am so pleased to have been asked to support Bev Facey as the new principal. Success builds a confident and thriving school community and Bev Facey demonstrates that success on a daily basis. We should be very proud of our students. With my varied experience in administration and teaching in EIPS, including a few years at Bev Facey and overseas, I will be able to continue with your expectation of excellence. As principal of Next Step for the past seven years, I will bring a unique background to ensure amazing and diverse opportunities be available for our community. Students and staff have told me how much they value the diversity and inclusivity embedded within our school culture. I look forward to building relationships with all members of our community and continuing to support ‘The Facey Way’ which fosters commitment, dedication, enthusiasm, loyalty and respect.
