Ms Narelle Umbers

Interim Principal

I am delighted to join Korowa as Interim Principal. Having recently returned home to Melbourne after a period of working overseas, the opportunity to take up this role and lead such an outstanding school is an honour.

Korowa has been a leader in education for over 130 years and we are incredibly proud of our long-standing reputation for excellence in education. We are committed to providing our students with a broad range of opportunities that will prepare them for life beyond school.

We continue to be innovative and agile to ensure we are providing our students with opportunities and programs, both curriculum and co-curriculum, that are relevant, engaging and leading-edge.

Following a corporate career in the information technology and financial services industries I chose to return to education because I am passionate about providing young people with the opportunities to explore their interests and challenge themselves to be the very best they can be.

With many years of experience in education I was most recently the Principal of Samuel Marsden Collegiate School, a high performing Kindergarten to Year 12 independent Anglican school for girls in Wellington, New Zealand and prior to that the Deputy Principal at Peninsula Grammar.

The Korowa community of parents, staff, students and Korovians is incredibly welcoming, connected and caring. I would encourage you to visit us at an Open Morning or take a tour with a member of our enrolments team to discover for yourself what Korowa can offer your child.
