Celebrating Principals’ Day 2020

Students and staff at Murrayville Community College have created a video thanking their principal as part of Principals’ Day.

Held on Friday 7 August 2020, Principals’ Day is an initiative of the Victorian Principals Association (VPA) and supported by the Department of Education and Training.

The day recognises the vital role principals such as Murrayville Community College principal Natasha Mudie play in achieving excellence in teaching and learning in our schools.

This year it is especially important to acknowledge the contributions that principals have made in delivering education in in difficult circumstances including the Summer bushfires and responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In the video, students and staff recognise Natasha as a passionate, innovative, cool and kind leader. Natasha was a student and teacher at Murrayville Community College before becoming principal seven years ago.

‘Thank you so much for inspiring us all and making us really value pride in our schools,’ librarian Stacey Morzer-Bruyns says in the video.

Natasha said it was lovely to be celebrated and acknowledged on Principals’ Day. 

‘I’m very fortunate to have such wonderful students and staff to work with, and also very fortunate to have fantastic colleagues as other principals throughout the Murray cluster,’ she said.  

Murrayville Community College is in Victoria’s north-west, 20 kilometres out from the South Australian border. 

Schools are encouraged to share their virtual VPA Principals’ Day celebration pictures on Twitter and LinkedIn, tagging @DETVic #PrincipalsDay.
