Love - Meet Keith, our Principal

Channel Christian School is in a beautiful setting, and is blessed with a supportive and happy community, and a thoroughly dedicated and professional staff.  The students make it a delight to attend school every single day.

When I accepted the position of Principal at Channel Christian School here in Margate, Tasmania, it marked a new and exciting sea-change for me.

I started my teaching career at Hudson Park Primary School in East London, South Africa and I worked there until my family and I moved to Australia in 2000. My first teaching job in Australia was at Walwa, a rural town in the beautiful upper Murray district, followed by senior roles at Corryong K-12 College and Brindabella Christian School. Each role has been rewarding and different and I have gained an enormous amount from my colleagues and the students I have been privileged to work with over the years.   

I believe that teaching is one of the most rewarding professions. A university lecturer once told me that teaching is rewarding because every single day of your teaching career will be different. I have never forgotten his words and he was right – every day of my teaching career continues to be different, and I love it!

When I’m not busy at school I love walking, reading, enjoying a good movie or piece of music and even though I am in Tasmania I still love and follow the Brumbies, ACT’s team in the Super Rugby Competition.

As you browse this website I hope and pray that it interests you and encourages you to make contact with our wonderful school. We would love to show you around and share the rich and meaningful education we offer at Channel Christian School with you and your family.

God bless.
