As a Principal, Rebecca Cody frames her responsibilities in terms of Chief Educator, Learner, Strategist, Coach and Ambassador. For over two decades across Tasmania, Western Australia, New Zealand and Victoria, Rebecca has taught and led in schools by energising ethicality, excellence and engagement.

“Supporting our students to be motivated and buoyant learners of great fortitude is both meaningful and joyous. Together, with families and the broader community, we strengthen their capacity to become purposeful, discerning and compassionate contributors.”

In 2012, Rebecca received a WA Business News 40-under-40 award for her change management at Methodist Ladies’ College, Claremont, and was the University of Western Australia's Strategic Alliance winner. Commencing in 2018, she is the first woman and first Australian-born to be offered the privilege of leading Geelong Grammar School.

As an alumna and Moderator for the Cranlana Centre for Ethical Leadership, Rebecca relishes every opportunity to contemplate moral agency through the ancients’ wisdom. These contemplations, Japanese green tea, literary classics and treating her children are Rebecca’s favourite indulgences.
