AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Principal is a story of intrigue and personal identity set against the backdrop of a boys high school in turmoil in South West Sydney.

'Matt Bashir, history teacher and former Deputy at a prestigious girls’ school, is swiftly promoted to the position of Principal of Boxdale Boys High. Boxdale is a troubled school with a history of conflict and Matt is determined to turn it around but his attempts at reform are met with scepticism and in some quarters, hostility from his beleaguered colleagues. But just when it seems he is making progress, a 17-year-old student is found dead on the school grounds.'

This miniseries set within the busy walls of an all-boys highschoolincorporates portrayals of territorial staff, cross-cultural tussles, sexual-orientation politics and even a police investigation following the murder of a student. But, with only four episodes in which to unfold, these otherwise-compelling threads will fall short of tying powerfully together, writes David Crewe.
