A new chapter for Melbourne Girls Grammar


Melbourne Girls Grammar is delighted to welcome Dr Toni Meath (B.Ed, M.Ed, D.Ed) as the 12th appointed principal in the school’s history.

An educator of exceptional standing, Toni is a true leader. The school is excited by the balance of innovative thinking and pragmatic principles that Toni brings from a stellar career as a wise and compassionate champion of girls’ education in Australia. Dr Toni Meath is renowned for fostering student voice and inspiring teachers to meet their full potential. Her leadership in these areas is evident through her track record of her staff being selected for leadership positions across Australia. Her students across many generations and colleagues hold her in the highest esteem.

I look forward to ‘walking with’ and leading our school community.
Dr Toni Meath, principal

Her educational leadership has been recognised both nationally and internationally – most recently at the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools in Washington. Toni is a National Fellow of the Australian Council of Educational Leaders (ACEL), a member of the Board of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA), and a director of the Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia. Most recently, Toni was principal of MacRobertson Girls’ High School for six years. Prior to this she was assistant principal and co-creator of Nossal High School, Victoria’s first coeducational select entry high school.

Toni’s passion for developing the whole individual shines through in her personal warmth, wisdom and compassion. She believes that enriching students with the ability to think critically and creatively is paramount to ensure they are prepared for an unknown future. She is focused on fostering excellence and celebrating diversity. This has been evident in her development of indigenous programs, and encouragement across the full spectrum of opportunities including sports, music and drama. She has a commitment to the ethos of the School and interest in engaging with alumnae and broader community.

Melbourne Girls Grammar is excited as the school ushers in a new chapter in the history.

Please join us in warmly welcoming Toni to our community.
