For the Whole of Their Life.

Head of Middle School

 My name is Phil Gallagher and It is with joy and excitement that I embark on the journey of leading the Middle School at St Philip’s Christian College - Cessnock. As a Christian educator with leadership experience in both Middle School and Senior School environments, it is my goal to lead a team of outstanding educators who will assist students to find success academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

In Middle School, engaging learning opportunities provide students with the ability to develop a lifelong love of learning. It is our desire to see students develop in character and resilience, to enable them to navigate the significant changes and challenges that occur during these years successfully. Additionally, our programs provide exposure to 21st Century skills that are essential in order to deliver the foundation for future success in both academic endeavours and career opportunities.

As a community, we seek to build on the strengths of each student, providing a wealth of opportunities for students to develop their God-given gifts and abilities. Through these opportunities we want to celebrate the successes of students who make wise choices and encourage positive contributions through service learning.

Finally, I look forward to meeting you in person and sharing with you in the journey of growth in each student’s life.
