Deputy Principal – Sarah Lane

Hello there. My name is Sarah Lane and I am the Deputy Principal at Springwood Central State School. It is my privilege to be able to support all members of our school community, including staff, students and parents, to reach their full potential.
In my role as Deputy Principal, I work closely with all members of the school administration team to provide both strategic and day-to-day leadership, ensuring the smooth overall operation of the school.   This is achieved by supporting all members of the SCSS community to continue to improve the learning and social environment to ensure that each of our students learns at high levels.
I believe every student can learn and the work of schools is to progress each student academically, socially and emotionally.
My role sees me working with teachers, fostering positive relationships with students and parents. I enjoy the opportunities my role provides to build and strengthen relationships with students, staff and parents.
It is my absolute pleasure to work with the Springwood Central State School family, and my door is always open if there is any way I can be of assistance to you or your family.
