Conversations with Leaders in Education – David Wanstall


David Wanstall has a passion for Education.
“Every child matters every day”
For 35 years David has repeated this mantra from Halls Creek District High School to Ballajura Primary School.
He is currently involved in the Centre of Excellence for Schools and supports Principals by showcasing school culture and teaching techniques through Ballajura Primary demonstration days.

However, Ballajura was not always the shining light of excellence. When David first started, he encountered student abuse and a culture of low performance. David has refined his leadership strategies and is proud to share what works for him in turning around a school from under-performing to high-performing.

I had the pleasure of interviewing David’s passion for education, culture and high performance.
