Principal’s Profile

In 2017, Mr Paul Sjogren was appointed as Principal of Trinity Anglican School.

Mr Sjogren has a background as an engineer before becoming an educator. Over his career, he has held positions as a Head of a Wigan Boarding House at Ballarat Grammar School, Head of Mathematics at Whitsunday Anglican School in Mackay, and Director of Senior School and Deputy Principal at St Andrew’s Anglican College on the Sunshine Coast. He has also had stints teaching overseas in Indiana and Florida in the USA.

A product of a regional Anglican school education, Mr Sjogren is a strong advocate of the moral and ethical foundations of education in an Anglican environment. He places emphasis on each student being given the opportunity and support to reach their potential in all aspects of their schooling. Mr Sjogren believes that great schools are able to balance the global, digital future needs of students with the traditionally valued characteristics of hard work, tolerance, team-work, leadership and service.

Mr Sjogren has a strong interest in the traits of effective and successful school leadership. In 2010 he spent a week at the Centre for Creative Leadership in North Carolina, one of the world’s leading leadership development organisations, and more recently at the Harvard Graduate School of Education working on leadership development strategies and skills.

His wife, Tracey, is a physiotherapist and he has two daughters: Danielle is studying Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne and Jacqueline is studying Psychology and Education at Wagner College in Staten Island, USA.
