Assistant Principal, Rebecca Wilson

As an Assistant Principal I love working with young people and helping them to stay ‘connected and on track’ while they are here at EC. Each day I am inspired by the talented, creative students in our classrooms and the dedicated, specialised staff who mentor them to achieve fantastic learning outcomes. As part of my role I work closely with Performing Arts, English, ESL/LOTE, Student Services and Communications teams. Elizabeth College is a dynamic learning community; I am proud to be part of and I look forward to meeting and working with students, parents and community members.

Assistant Principal, Helen Cooke

I have been Assistant Principal at Elizabeth College for the last 14 years. I have taught maths at various schools in Hobart and Melbourne since the start of my teaching career. In my Assistant Principal role I am responsible for the Maths, Science and VET programs, as well as the International Student Program.  My primary goal is to help all our students feel good about coming to college and to enjoy and take advantage of all the opportunities offered to them.

Assistant Principal, Oliver Close

I have been a teacher at Elizabeth College for a number of years now. As Assistant Principal, I have responsibility for the curriculum areas of Health & Physical Education, Alternative Programs and Technology. I also oversee enrolments, transition, assessment and reporting, TCE and flexible learning. I’m passionate about my job. Making a positive difference in people’s lives is a great motivator! I enjoy the opportunity to work in range of areas to assist our students to develop the skills needed to achieve their goals and set the platform for their continued success in life after college.

Assistant Principal, Sarah Cupit

I have lived in Tasmania/lutruwita and Hobart/nipaluna for most of my life. I love this place and I passionately believe that education is crucial in shaping the lives of the young people who live here as well as the way we care for the land on which we live. My own background in reading and teaching literature has opened my mind to big ideas and the ways we can make meaning of the world and I work closely with the English, Languages, Humanities, Library and ECAAD teams to get students excited about the big ideas of their world, and to help them think critically and empathetically. I have high expectations of the students at the college; I’m strong on attendance, having a go, and reflecting and taking responsibility for learning. It is a privilege to be part of such a                                                                supportive, respectful college.
