Being appointed Principal at Peter Carnley Anglican Community School is an extraordinary honour for Ms House. Her philosophy as a Principal is to empower people to make good choices both in school and in life. She has two teenage daughters, and has an understanding of the challenges faced by parents today. Schools thrive when the school, student and parents are working together.

Ms House grew up on a mixed crop and livestock farm in Toodyay where her family raised merino sheep, together with cattle and grew oats and barley crops.  She still  visits her family farm as often as she can, and heads to the beach for summer holidays.  A keen sportswoman, Ms House grew up playing netball, volleyball, basketball, tennis, golf and enjoyed taking part in equestrian events.  Other sporting passions included athletics and cross country running competitions. 

Sport these days has been replaced by gardening and yoga.  Ms House has a menagerie of animals, and a fine vegie garden to replicate farm life.  Her family mean everything to her.  Coming to work each day is a delight for Ms House, especially when greeted by the smiles and happy faces at PCACS.
