Vale, Victoria Wissell

On Tuesday morning I received the sad news that Vicky Wissell, former principal of St Brigid’s Primary School, passed away after her two-year battle with cancer. Vicky was Principal of St Brigid's from 2017 until 2022, although stepping back from the role in 2021 following her diagnosis. Prior to 2017 Vicky was the Principal of Sacred Heart Primary School, Yea. She made a significant contribution to Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Melbourne as a leader and educator. She is survived by her husband, Gary, daughters Laura and Shae, sons Tori and James, and grandchildren Levi, Jackson and Ava, whom we remember in our prayers at this difficult time. Vicky will be greatly missed by family and friends, teachers and pupils, and the whole St Brigid’s School community.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
