Deputy Principals


Melissa Sharman

As Deputy Principal and as a nationally certified Lead Teacher, I strongly believe in the value of education and the ability of every teacher to have a positive impact on the lives of the young people they teach. Turramurra High School is a place where this philosophy has been embraced, as every day we, as a collective of staff and students, challenge ourselves and those we work with to achieve their best.

Whether it is in teaching Science, or in working with students through wellbeing programs, in celebrating student academic success or in being part of the many extra-curricular activities available, I feel privileged to be part of the learning journey of students here. There is a shared vision for empowering students to be respectful and responsible citizens and the leaders and creators of tomorrow.

Being part of a vibrant community, I enjoy working with parents, carers and other agencies to provide a full range of opportunities and services and am encouraged by the willingness of all parties to work together to improve outcomes for all our young people. The forward thinking approach of Turramurra High School fosters collaboration and critical thinking, always seeking to meet the needs and aspirations of the students in this time of fast paced innovation and change.
