At a ceremony held last Friday, Mr Webber was presented with his award for leadership and excellence, and described as a �transformative� school leader.

The award citation said Mr Webber had focused on the development of school culture through multiple initiatives aimed at maximising student engagement and achievement.

�I was honoured and humbled to be recognised in this way by my peers through ACEL, which most significantly is directly due to the outstanding work of the dedicated staff at the school,� he said.

Mr Webber is renowned for his open leadership style, an approach focusing on developing the skills, talents and abilities of others.

He considers others first and is known for his passion on multiple educational fronts – team building, indigenous education, personal excellence and connection with students. Mr Webber has also promoted social justice at the school.

ACEL WA president Keith Newton said the awards reflected the phenomenal work being undertaken at all educational levels across the State.
