MEET THE TEAM
Andrew Lloyd | Principal
Andrew has decades of experience in education, which has shaped his belief that learning is a journey. “Learning occurs when a teacher and a student work in partnership, where there is a mutual understanding, resulting in a growing respect, and allowing learning to become a natural part of life.”
A qualified secondary teacher he believes that every child should have access to a quality education. For the past 30 years Andrew has worked across NSW, SA, and NT education systems in rural, remote and very remote education.
Andrew’s teaching specialties are maths and science. He has worked as the Assistant Principal at Centralian Senior College, Alice Springs and as a curriculum writer marker and moderator for the SACE Board of South Australia
Leivur Ragnarsson | Teacher
Leivur comes from the Faroe Islands, a small group of Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean just south of the Polar Circle.
He studied to become a teacher in Denmark after a trip to India where he taught Afghani refugees basic English and computer skills - and realised how much impact he could have as a teacher.
He has since taught in the Faroes, Tanzania and then in Thailand where he met his Australian wife. He moved to Australia 7 years ago where he has been specialising in high school Mathematics alongside a range of other subjects, including Science.
“I am truly looking forward to playing my part in making this innovative approach to education a great success. I cant wait to meet the students and welcome them to our new learning environment”.

Nicole is passionate about students' welfare and learning. She hopes to make a difference in each student's life and help them achieve their personal goals. In her downtime, Nicole likes to entertain friends and family, as well as going to the beach.
