Taking up the position as principal at the beginning of the year, Mr Rivett has already received a warm welcome from the school and the community.

Coming from Rossville State School, he knows the importance of small community schools and is excited to get to know the Biboohra “family” more.

“I love small schools and I love the connections that you get to make with parents, students, staff and broader community,” he said.

“The school is very much the heart of the community here – small schools are great.

“(One of the biggest highlights so far) has been meeting the kids and meeting the people who make the school.

“Walking into the school you can already tell it is a very special place and I look forward to making it even better.”

With 20 years in education behind him, Mr Rivett is excited to bring new ideas into the school and help it grow.

Some of the upcoming events he is in the process of organising is the student leader badge ceremony and a Harmony Day event.

“I would like the bring the school up more and I have heard so many things about Biboohra being an excellent foundation for students as they travel through their education journey,” he said.

“I would like to ensure that continues and I would like to ensure we maintain our reputation and our expectations.”
