Oakleigh Grammar will be welcoming our new Head of Junior School – Mrs Shelley Parkes, in Term 1, 2020.

Mrs Parkes will bring a wealth of knowledge, that we believe will greatly help further develop and grow our Junior School, drawing on an expansive career in education and executive leadership, with her most recent position being Head of Junior School for Haileybury Rendall School, Darwin.

Added to Mrs Parkes impressive professional career, she is also a busy wife and mother to two wonderful teenage children, who enjoys travel and catching up with friends in her spare time.

Despite Mrs Parkes leadership roles, she always considers herself “A teacher first.”Allowing her to stay grounded and to create an environment of equal opportunity when making executive decisions.

We are so excited to bring Mrs Parkes into our team at Oakleigh Grammar, and we can’t wait to see all the fun things she will achieve during her time with us.

Welcome to Oakleigh Grammar!
