Gymea Technology High School (NSW)
Peter Marsh has been in his current principal role for the last five years. Four years ago, he led the school community in an evaluation of classroom learning environments that ultimately led to the revitalisation of learning spaces as part of a Design2Learn program. All general learning spaces and the school’s technology centre have been transformed since that time, in keeping with 21st century learning research and the needs of the community. A key feature of the program was the significant role of both staff and students. Marsh also led the introduction of the Head Start to High School program, an initiative for students moving from Year 6 into high school, allowing those new students to connect with their high school through a range of after-school activities.
