Gorokan High School welcomes new Principal

Matthew Boake has been confirmed as Gorokan High School’s new Principal.

Relieving Principal, Shanie Singleton, confirmed Boake’s appointment in the school’s July 1 newsletter, noting that he’d officially start in the role from the commencement of Term 3.

“Our previous Principal, Samuel Ricketts, was successful in attaining a permanent promotional role as a Principal, School Leadership, and as such we had to commence the process of securing a new Principal,” Singleton said.

“Boake was successful in this process and we are very pleased to welcome him to our school community.

“I would like to acknowledge the tremendous support that the staff of Gorokan High School have extended me as I relieved during quite a tumultuous 12-month period.

“My tenure saw our school community deal with fire, flood and then a pandemic and our staff, and indeed our community, supported me tremendously as the Principal throughout it all.

“While I was very proud to lead such a wonderful school community, I am very excited to ‘hand over the reigns’ to Mr Boake and I look forward to supporting the senior leadership team in my beloved role of Deputy Principal,” Singleton said.
