James Gill, Deputy Principal - Community and Wellbeing

St Francis de Sales College is a diverse community, where each person is known and loved, and where the beauty and providence of the natural environment is honoured and respected by all. It is in strong communities such as this that young people thrive, develop their curiosity and strive to be the best versions of themselves.

As Deputy Principal - Community and Wellbeing, it is my great privilege to work with the families in our ever-growing region to ensure that every person in our community can "be who you are, and be that well'.

I am excited to join the St Francis de Sales College community in 2023 as the Deputy Principal – Learning, and look forward to engaging with students, families and staff to help improve individual student learning outcomes.

I have a great passion for the education of young people, with a particular interest in teaching and learning and the connection to Pastoral Care and student wellbeing.

I look forward to working with the Leadership team and the whole community towards the College’s strategic priorities and through my contribution, adding to the College’s reputation of welcome and belonging.

Paul McCabe, Business Manager

Since commencing at the College in 2018, I have been greatly impressed with the quality of the building programs entered into including the Sports Centre and Junior School development. This couldn’t have happened without the dedication and just plain hard work undertaken by the College Leadership Team, and the support and encouragement provided by our Board. That dedication and its commitment to the future is now being illustrated every day within our College community and is expressed by a school-wide focus on a consistency of purpose that acclaims our Catholic Faith, highlights the College’s Heart Values and provides a sophisticated learning environment. 

My role is to ensure the College continues to provide financial outcomes that support the provision of a productive learning environment. I look forward to continuing the work with the College Leadership Team and Board as well as student families to ensure a successful, long-term and sustainable future for St Francis de Sales College.

Oreste Farrugia, APRIM

Continuing to develop the Catholic Identity of the St Francis de Sales community is integral to my role as APRIM. I am blessed to be part of a team that values positive relationships, high standards of learning, and a deep commitment to their Catholic faith.

I am passionate about providing opportunities for students, their families, and staff to live life to the full, by knowing who they are, caring for others and the natural world, and seeking relationship with God.
