[On-screen text: Introducing your new principal]

[Upbeat music plays throughout]

A smiling man comes gradually into focus as he walks towards us.

Brad Moyle (in voice over):  Hi, I'm Brad. I’m excited to be the principal of your new school.

We see Brad sitting at a table, working on a laptop computer.

We see Brad standing and speaking to someone off screen.

[On-screen text: What was your education journey?]

Brad Moyle: I'm really fortunate and privileged to have gone to government schools myself, and that led me into, I suppose, a passion for working with others and then had the opportunity to pursue a leadership opening as a primary school principal. And then it's grown from there, having led both primary, P-12s, and also secondary schools around the state.

[On-screen text: What is your vision for the school?]

Brad Moyle: It's about really providing a schooling opportunity for our students where they can engage with learning that's meaningful. That's going to link them and give them a passion for a pathway beyond school. But it's underpinned by our 3 values of achievement, belonging, and curiosity, because we believe they’re fundamental for student success, both at school and in life beyond school.

[On-screen text: What type of leader are you?]

Brad Moyle: As a leader, I've got a finger on the pulse and I know what's happening around the school, and the only way to do that is by being out and about and being visible and engaging with our students, engaging with our staff, and also the broader community and taking that opportunity to meet parents, whether it's at the gate, whether it's at school, school events, or whether it's just seeing them out in the broader community.

[On-screen text: How will the design of the school help support students and teachers?]

Brad Moyle: There is a world of opportunity with these designs for us to really adapt some contemporary thinking around how we deliver secondary education to the students around Werribee – and some real opportunities to think about technology and how we harness that. But also we've got spaces that are really going to support students and their learning, providing them with both learning spaces that are modern, but also those breakout spaces and wellbeing spaces around the school, where we can cater for the different learning needs and the different wellbeing needs of our students.

[On-screen text: Where will we find you in the school?]

Brad Moyle: Parents and students can expect to see me around the school. They can expect me to be accessible and available to them. By going into the classrooms and talking to students about what are they learning, what are they doing and how are they going with it, and how do they know they're successful to grow and achieve.

[On-screen text: What are you looking forward to on day 1, Term 1?]

Brad Moyle: I think it's that opportunity to actually go and open the school buildings, knowing that we're going to have a cohort of Year 7s walk through those gates. They're going to be excited about being in a new school, in a new environment, with people they know –  with new friends as well – but really building that sense of community from day one.
