Our Staff

Mandy Westgate comes from St Kevin’s Catholic Primary School Eastwood where she was Principal for the past six years. Prior to this, Mandy began her teaching career at St Mary’s Concord, where she became the Religious Education Coordinator before continuing her journey as the Assistant Principal at Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School North Ryde.

As a current member of the Ministerial Advisory Group on Literacy and Numeracy for NSW, Mandy ensures her staff and students are given the best opportunities to excel. She is also involved in numerous educational focused committees including Reading Recovery, Strategic Planning and Sydney Catholic Schools’ Literacy and Numeracy.

Having grown up in Cabarita and baptised at St Patrick’s Catholic Parish Mortlake, Mandy has developed a strong connection with this community and is excited to give back to this wonderful area of Sydney.

“It is an honour and privilege to be part of this very special community. To create a school in a new time and place is very exciting and we will look forward to building community, acknowledging the past and bringing a sense of wonder and curiosity to our young learners. Our children spend so many of their waking hours in our care that they deserve to feel loved, challenged, guided and supported. What a joyous experience awaits us all.”
