Mitcham Girls High School

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Mitcham Girls High School

Dear Parents/Caregivers, 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of Mitcham  Girls High School.  I feel very excited and privileged to take on this role.  This is my 14th year as a school Principal and I have had some wonderful experiences in leadership in the country, metro area and overseas. On a personal note, I am a mother of two adult daughters and a son, and I am hoping for some grandchildren in the future. I enjoy renovating, gardening, reading, music, dancing and spending time with family and friends. 

During my visits over the past few weeks, I have felt extremely welcomed and I can already see that I am going to love being part of this team.  I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge previous principal Linda Baird for her hard work from 2019 to 2021.  Since the beginning of this year, Nathan Cini has done an outstanding job as Principal together with Sarah Chambers as Deputy Principal. Nathan and Sarah have worked tirelessly and have undertaken the requirements of both a Partnership and External School Review during Term 1 with great success.  

Strong relationships with students, staff and parents is what makes a successful school with a focus on high expectations and high support. I look forward to getting to know the families and the broader community to allow us to work together to bring about success for all students at Mitcham Girls High School.  

Yours sincerely, 

Linda Richardson 
Principal
