Michael joined the Mater Dei community in 2022 and comes with 20 years of teaching and leadership positions in the Brisbane and Armidale Dioceses. Most recently he has been the Principal at St Patrick's School, Walcha and St Francis Xavier's School, Narrabri.

Michael, his wife and two sons have moved to Toowoomba and are settling into their new home and community.

As principal, Michael is keen to continue the very strong teaching and learning culture and quality outcomes which are a feature of Mater Dei.

“I base my leadership on ‘faith by example’, a relentless focus on quality teaching and learning and always having the students at the forefront of our strategic direction.”
