Committee Member

Willetton Senior High School

Trevor has held teaching positions and been an administrator in a number of schools in both metropolitan and country locations for over 35 years. His experience in Economics and History teaching, a range of administrator positions, including as Principal of Belmont City College, Byford Secondary College and most recently Willetton Senior High School. Trevor has gained his experience in a number of educational settings including 11 years in the Pilbara and positions in schools and Central Office.

An active committee member, Trevor represented WASSEA nationally at the Commonwealth Parliament gathering for the review on school autonomy. He was also the secondary principal representative on the Public Private Partnership (PPP) panel for the evaluation of the successful consortium for the building of new primary and secondary schools in WA. He participated in the review of finance practices within the DoE and represented WASSEA on the Finance and Schools Resource Group in 2016.

Trevor’s passion for public education and in particular, support and improvements for small and low ICSEA schools, also includes a deep interest in innovation and the use of technology within both classrooms and in the administrative processes within schools.

He believes WASSEA’s key role in supporting a strong public education system in WA centres clearly on representing the views and concerns of secondary school administrators to the DoE Executive and the broader Western Australian community. He says that as a professional organisation rather than a union, we are in a position to promote change beyond the elements of working conditions and to have a positive impact on what happens in schools through autonomy, curriculum and assessment change and a continuing focus on the ever-present issue of our members’ health and wellbeing.
