New leadership breathes new life


​You may have heard whispers that something is happening at Keebra Park State High School.  The school has a new leadership team. Aesthetically, the team are working on raising the school to its former glory; buildings are being rejuvenated with a coat of paint and the leafy gardens of the school are being revegetated with a range of natives. Academically the school is moving forward with new Principal, Ms Catherine Pfingst. Ms Pfingst  comes from one of the highest performing state schools in Queensland and brings balance to the school, as she meshes the nationally acclaimed  Sports Specialisation  program and Keebra Park’s strong Academic Excellence program to provide quality education for all students. Ms Pfingst’s Masters in Girls Education and representative sporting achievements enables her to have a cross curriculum understanding and a focus on the best interest of all students.

The school also has a new Deputy Principal, Mrs Sharie Callum. Mrs Callum has a background in business and school improvement, a Masters in Career Guidance and Counselling and 10 years of industry experience prior to teaching. 

Don’t worry there still is a mix of the old with the new; Mr Steve Hart has been a Deputy Principal at the school for the past 7 years and maintains a gender balance to the leadership team. Mr Hart has a background in Reading Recovery and has now moved to the Junior Secondary Deputy Principal role to manage the transition of year 7 to high school in 2015.

Keebra Park is a small school, perfectly placed to cater for the transition of year 7 to high school. The Junior Secondary facility is currently being renovated as we prepare for the introduction of the year 7's in 2015. 

This encapsulates our new catch phrase perfectly: 'Big enough for  opportunity, small enough to care!'
