I can only speak of my dealings with Val Furphy from a parent's point of view. Associate Principal is not an easy job and stress levels can be extreme. Even the best teachers sometimes make questionable decisions that they might later regret. With me she has always been helpful, polite and a good representative of Perth Mod. This is not to detract from student comment re recent incident. Contributors might consider more constructive criticisms regardless of angst felt. Stars because I had to.

Quite honestly one of my favourite people at the school. Manages to connect with students on a personal level and has befriended the majority of them. Renowned for her handling of difficult situations, Val time and time again proves she os overqualified for her current role and quite realistically has a promotion on the cards in the near future. A quality human being, it is ridiculous to think that she is receiving such low ratings as part of a spiteful defamation campaign against her.

I like her as she is interesting and open to student oppinion. However I cannot say that I disagree with the first two readable comments.

I think she should be more proactive. This is especially needed in overruling Robyn White. Robyn needs to be phased out.
