Mr Joel Weekes - Head of Junior School (K-6)
In January 2017, the St Gregory’s College community welcomed Mr Joel Weekes (B.T., B.Ed., M.Ed) as the inaugural Head of Junior School. Mr Weekes is a passionate educator who has come to us from being the Head of Primary at Moreton Bay Boys’ College in Queensland. He has previously worked as the Deputy Head at Newington College in Sydney and prior to that spent time in NSW Department Schools. Mr Weekes has a wife, Rebecca and three children, Imogen, Cody and Isla.
Mr Weekes is passionate about student engagement, teacher-student relationships and wants the future students of the Junior School to begin their lifetime of learning with a sense of wonder and a spirit of inquiry. Mr Weekes believes that literacy and numeracy form the foundation of a student’s interaction in society and strong early year’s literacy and numeracy programs are the key to a student’s success.
It is an exciting time to be at St Gregory’s College!
