Creating an inspirational culture

Listening to Nuriootpa High School principal, Mr Ian Tooley, you can’t help but be inspired by his enthusiasm for making the best of every student’s education.

His office is covered with inspirational posters, each with quotes it’s obvious Mr Tooley really believes.

He knows what it’s like to beat the odds as a student from Elizabeth Vale who hated homework to being a teacher/principal for close to 40 years.

Now in his fifth year at Nuriootpa High, Mr Tooley started at Whyalla, before working at Freemont, Riverton, Balaklava, back to Riverton and then Birdwood.

The son of migrants from Liverpool, Mr Tooley is proud of his upbringing and how far he has come.
