Principal update

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,
I wish to inform you that I have been offered the position of Principal at King George V Secondary School in Hong Kong. After much deliberation, I have decided to accept the position which begins in August this year. I am excited by the learning experiences this venture will create for my family and I. I began working with Education Queensland as a 22 year old, so to leave has been a huge decision for me.
Our South East Regional Office will manage the appointment process for a new Principal to ensure a smooth leadership transition for our school. I will remain as Principal at Helensvale SHS until the end of Term 2 and it will be business as usual as we continue to provide a great place for our students to come to school.
It has always been a privilege and honour to be Principal at Helensvale SHS and I will always be grateful for the support I have received from our students, families, staff and community. It has been a wonderful learning experience for me to lead such a large, vibrant and dynamic learning community.
I have great confidence that moving forward, our school will continue to be the ‘school of choice’ on the Northern Gold Coast.
Kind regards,
Mark Blackshaw
Executive Principal
