Mr Phillip Cox is our prominent Assistant School Principal at Swan Hill Primary School and was appointed in 2017.
Mr Cox has had a range of roles at our school since coming in 2009, and understands the needs of students and staff at all different levels. At Swan Hill Primary, he has been a classroom teacher for 3 years and has a fabulous rapport with our students. Mr Cox moved into a Literacy and Numeracy Coaching role in 2012.
Mr Cox loves getting out into the playground with the students and can be seen at lunchtimes having a kick of the footy with students on the oval. Out of school, Mr Cox loves his Sea Lake Football and Netball Club, and applies the team spirit and coaching skills he has learnt from the club to his roles at school.
Mr Cox is very good at inspiring students to be the best they can be and always has high expectations of students learning and behaviour. He speaks well at our school assemblies and talks to students on their level, which makes him a highly respected teacher at our school. In 2016, he was nominated by the school community for the OfficeMax ‘A Day Made Better’ Teaching Awards and was short-listed for a NETA ‘Teacher of the Year’ Award in 2013.
Mr Cox hopes to continue to improve teaching and learning of all students in his role as Assistant School Principal and is well supported by the team around him. He is also the Sub-School leader for Year 4.
