KEVIN FULLBROOK
Deputy principal
Murrumba State Secondary College (QLD)

Kevin Fullbrook was one of the youngest deputy principals in the state when he joined Murrumba State Secondary College in 2012 at the age of 32, and has since been driving an innovation agenda that is primarily built around establishing a culture of ‘service learning’ throughout the college from Year 7 to Senior. Large numbers of students are now completing formal certificates in Active Volunteering, which has become the most popular elective subject choice in Year 10 and 11, and staff benefit by having one day of ‘volunteering leave’ during the year to engage in areas of need in the local community. Fullbrook’s efforts have led to him presenting the ‘great outcomes’ of his work to the ‘Think Tank on Global Education’, hosted by the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the National Volunteering Conference.
