Fine vision marks a new school

How planning during the first seasons, with a strong on and off-field approach, can dictate success for years to come.

One of Perth’s latest schools, St James’ Anglican School in Alkimos, is facing the same challenge, and foundation principal Adrian Pree is watching the campus grow from the ground up.

He has been working from temporary offices as the school’s first buildings go up around him in readiness for next year.

It’s a blank canvas, an excited Mr Bree told the Times after relaying Anglican Schools

Commission chief executive Peter Laurence’s message of there being many principals to come but only one foundation principal.

If Mr Bree’s enthusiasm and vision for the school are anything to go by, the new school will be a success for years to come.
