Welcome Executive Principal Mr Mike O'Connor

Dear Parents/Caregivers and Students,

It is with great pleasure that we can announce our newly appointed Upper Coomera State College Executive Principal, Mr Mike O’Connor.

Mr O’Connor brings with him a great deal of knowledge and experience leading both Primary and Secondary schools. He is currently the Principal of Browns Plains State High School and will commence with us as Upper Coomera State Colleges Executive Principal at the start of Term 4.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mr O’Connor to our college and trust he will settle in nicely to our wonderful UCSC community.

Please see Mr O’Connor’s message below…

I am very pleased to introduce myself as the Executive Principal of Upper Coomera State College –Mike O’Connor. I come to the college with experience as a school leader in both Primary and Secondary schools. For the last four years I have been Principal of Browns Plains State High School, and before this I led Mabel Park State High School for five years. Prior to these roles my school leadership appointments include - Principal at Eagleby South State School, Deputy Principal at Helensvale State School and Teaching Principal at Hannaford State School. My focus as a school leader is always centred on high quality teaching practices that enable student learning within a disciplined and safe environment. I believe that teachers should work at their own professional improvement, be involved in research projects and enact evidence-based strategies. To develop myself, and also to model this ethos I am halfway through the completion of a doctoral degree with Griffith University. I look forward to working with the college community to support all students towards a successful and happy future.
Regards, Mike O’Connor
