Good News For Ms Chappell!

31 Jul 2020

Dear Community Members of Oatley West Public School

I write to inform you that Ms Neralie Chappell our Deputy Principal, has been offered and accepted the substantive position as Principal of Peakhurst South Public School following the completion of a Departmental merit-based selection process and pending the 10-day appeal period.

Ms Chappell impressed the merit-based selection panel through all parts of the process, her written application, interview and referees’ comments, which confirmed her expertise and capacity to effectively lead and manage Peakhurst South Public School in the role of Principal.

Ms Chappell has demonstrated her educational leadership through a wide range of experiences in a variety of school settings. For the last five and a half years she has successfully coordinated whole school programs as Deputy Principal at our school and was integral to collaboratively ensuring whole school improvement as Assistant Principal at Beverly Hills Public School (2013-2014). Prior to this, she gained breadth and depth of leadership opportunities for eight years in a large, diverse school community as Relieving Assistant Principal, Carlton Public School (2005-2012).

I know you will join me in congratulating Ms Chappell in her new career as Principal. She will take up this position from Monday 10th August 2020.

We wish her well.

Kind regards

Paul Nash



Ms Neralie Chappell
