PAUL TAYLOR
Principal
Turramurra North Public School (NSW)

When Paul Taylor became principal at Turramurra North Public School in 2014, he set out to revolutionise the school’s classrooms to adapt to 21st century realities. In his two years as principal, Taylor has provided his school with Wi-Fi, transformed the library into a modern learning zone, and combined the Year 5 and 6 students to create a ‘super class’ of 76 students led by three teachers. Students have published books that are now found in every public primary school in NSW, and the school’s NAPLAN results have increased as a result of improved student engagement: 82% of Year 5 students achieved Bands 7 and 8 in reading.
