East Hamilton Hill Primary School�s Geoff Miller claimed a Certificate for Excellence, an award handed down for showing leadership when implementing initiatives, conducting research, or improving student outcomes.
Mr Miller, now in his ninth year as principal of the school, said he was surprised but honoured to claim the award.
�This award is an acknowledgement of the dedication and commitment demonstrated by staff, students and parents over a long period of time,� he said.
�It�s a team effort and recent success has not happened over night.�
Mr Miller said his team was working to make East Hamilton Hill the school of choice for locals.
�There are parents close to our school who are not aware of our improved reputation in education circles,� he said.
�We want prospective parents to visit so that we can show them how their child can access a wide range of educational opportunities and experiences at their local school.�
