New Head of Wardle House and Deputy Principal

We are delighted to advise that Ms Melissa Schoorman has been appointed as the new Head of Wardle House and Deputy Principal, commencing Term 3.

Melissa is a well-respected and inspirational leader who strongly believes that primary school education is pivotal in forming children as lifelong learners. An authority on literacy and numeracy in the primary years, Melissa has a proven ability to help students reach their potential. She is passionate about working with families to bring out the best in her students and is an expert in pastoral care, learning support and learning extension programs.

“My passion is to ensure all students are given an equal opportunity to succeed and are inspired by school life. I endeavour at all times, to provide an environment that nurtures the whole child, caters for individual needs and differences whilst always believing in a child’s capacity to succeed.”

In her most recent role as Senior Deputy Head of Campus and Head of Junior School at Haileybury City Campus, Melissa was responsible for the day-to-day operation of the city campus. She was also responsible for the successful transition of students from junior to senior schools and was heavily involved in the City of Melbourne community.

We are confident that Melissa’s vision for the students of Wardle House will ensure that Toorak College continues to build on its reputation as one of Australia’s leading and innovative primary schools.
