T3W10 – 26 May 2023
With great excitement, I would like to announce that next year I will take on the dual role of Primary Division Principal and Head of School.
Considering the needs of the Primary Division this transition will enable me to support staff, students and families and take on a more hands-on role in the educational programme of the Primary Division while overseeing the whole school. This model will also allow us to widen our search and take a more considered and long-term approach in creating a supportive pathway for our next Primary Principal.
Over the last two years, I have established strong working relationships with both the CLT and the school board. These important whole-school relationships have enabled me to feel confident in assuming the dual role of Primary Principal and Head of School next year. As Head of School, I am the source of communication between the Board and the senior leadership of the school, and I feel this element will help strengthen and promote the Primary Division. I also believe that my appointment will allow for a more seamless transition between the three divisions of the school. This is one of our key strategic thrusts.
Prior to being a Head of school, I had many years of experience as a Primary educator and Primary Principal. I also have previously assumed similar roles at other international schools. With this invaluable knowledge and experience, I feel very confident that our Primary Division and our whole school can continue to grow and flourish. In fact, I can’t wait for next year!
