KRISTY KENDALL

KRISTY KENDALL
Principal
Toorak College (VIC)

At 36 years of age, Kristy Kendall is one of the youngest – if not the youngest – principals in Victoria. However, she sees age as no barrier to taking on a role that is increasingly viewed as one of the toughest that society has to offer. When it comes to motivating students’ interest and performance in STEM education, Kendall is as driven as they come. Together with her executive, Kendall is helping students from prep to Year 12 gain crucial STEM skills through the school’s ‘digi-zone’ where they can practice innovation, creation and problem-solving. Kendall says she wants girls to “dream up their futures and start making their own rules”
