BSHS Welcomes New Principal

Dear Students, Families and Community Members
As I commence Term 2 as the acting Principal of Bowen State High school for the remainder of 2015 whilst Terri Byrne is the acting Assistant Regional Director, I am energised and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all students and providing supportive systems to ensure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is our goal at Bowen State High school that all students will be career or tertiary ready.  It is my privilege and honour to join Bowen State High school and I am looking forward to an exciting and challenging year of learning and growing with our students and working with our school staff, parents and community members. My past experience has shown me that it takes a team to help all students reach their maximum potential.  I will work collaboratively with the staff at Bowen State High to provide an academic program where all students can be successful.  We will make every effort so that all students will become successful members of society and are able to compete in an increasingly complex world in which they will work and live. 
The caring and dedicated staff at Bowen State High school will continue to encourage all students to set high goals for themselves and to reach for their set targets.  It remains essential to continue to develop higher levels of thinking and learning and higher levels of engagement opportunities for all students.  Working together, we can ensure that the students of Bowen State High school continue to achieve their highest potential in and outside of the classroom.  Your involvement, partnership and support are greatly appreciated during the school year as we work to continue to build and maintain our programs and processes.
I trust that the school break has been an opportunity to rest, relax and recuperate – but most importantly, to enjoy the blessing of unstructured time to be with family and friends and do the things you want to do. I anticipate an exciting year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of learning and success.  I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families and staff members. Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve success.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort. The remainder of the year will be busy, exciting, challenging and rewarding for each student.  We want you to join us in making this the very best and successful experience for your children.  Being informed will help.  Throughout the year our school website, Facebook page, school calendar and periodic newsletters will provide you with the most current information.  However many times you will have questions.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school or any of our teachers.
I am confident that this will be an outstanding school year and look forward to working with the students, staff, school families and community members to continue the growth and achievements of Bowen State High school.
Pam Prichard.
