It is a privilege to be part of the GEMS Wellington Academy community. This is my eleventh year leading a GEMS Wellington school and I am immensely proud to be part of the GEMS Wellington Family. As a founding member of GEMS Wellington Academy – Silicon Oasis (WSO) I have had the honour of leading WSO through nine KHDA inspections and two British Schools Overseas inspections rated ‘Outstanding’.

I am an accomplished and ambitious Principal with a simple overarching objective: to maximise all students’ potential and to ensure that every student excels. I pride myself on being an innovative, forward-thinking leader with highly effective communication skills, I aim to empower and motivate all stakeholders in achieving our school’s shared vision.

Our philosophy at GEMS Wellington Academy – Silicon Oasis is to encourage the various talents of all our students.

We commit to providing every student with an exceptional learning experience in an inspiring environment, coupled with exceptional facilities.

We have a committed and innovative team of staff who promote and model a passion for lifelong learning.
