We look forward to the arrival of our new Principal – Samantha Jensen – in 2021.
Samantha is an experienced and highly successful Catholic educator and leader. She was previously the Deputy Principal, Loreto Mandeville Hall, Toorak. Prior to that Samantha held leadership positions at John Paul College, Brisbane, and Queensbridge School, Birmingham, UK. She holds a Master of Educational Leadership from the Australian Catholic University as well as a Master of Teaching from the Queensland Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) from the University of Queensland, and is currently undertaking further post-graduate study in Theology.
Samantha’s personal faith and proven excellence as a contemporary educational leader is clear, and provides a firm foundation to undertake the role as the next Principal of Mount Alvernia. Samantha brings a strong focus on student achievement as well as demonstrated practical commitment to the environment and the disadvantaged, particularly those from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
