Angela Bachtle

Principal of Hillsong College – Sydney Hills Campus. My role is to make sure that staff are inspired to lead our student body as well as ensuring our students have a world class experience. One of the joys of my life is watching a student come to college and see them develop and grow into a leader who is confident, skilled and highly capable. I am always inspired by the people who come to our college from all over the world. They build incredible friendships that last a lifetime, develop personal leadership skills by being involved in training environments and practical hands on experience in church life. Students learn and practice how to effectively lead others as well as finding their purpose.  Our desire is that they would fall in love with Jesus and His glorious Church.
