After advertisements, application and interviews, I am pleased to announce a range of staff appointments for 2018.
Mrs Tracey Hartgers will take on the permanent Full-time Middle School teaching position. Mr James Adamthwaite and Mr Jordan VanAalst have been appointed to the Junior School teacher role in a 12 month position.
Mr Adamthwaite has also accepted a Chapel Assistant position as a result of Matt Stackhouse undertaking more teaching in CLS in the Senior school and being asked to take on a formal KLA leader for 5-12 Christian Life Studies.
Mrs Emma Davidge
We are delighted to announce that the Acting Head of Senior School position has been accepted by Mrs Emma Davidge. Emma is currently at Merewether High teaching High potential students in Legal Studies, Society and Culture, Marine Studies (Stage 4) and Stage 4-5 History and Geography. Prior to this and having her 2 children, Emma was Year Level Coordinator and Deputy Head of Humanities at Oxford Falls Grammar School.
Mrs Danielle Adamo has submitted her resignation from the end of the year to take on a position running her parents business. Mrs Adamo will miss the students and her colleagues but is excited about this opportunity. It is an interesting situation for the family and one that I’m sure she would love to share with you.
In addition, as a result of Mrs Farnham’s retirement, Mrs Mel Marin has accepted the KLA leader position in English. Mrs Marin will return from maternity leave after teaching at Merewether and most recently at Belmont Christian College.
In internal arrangements, Chantal Casey has accepted the KLA Leader in Maths and Mrs Anne Duquemin will take on the KLA Leader in History. Mrs Lea Hawgood has accepted the Stage 5 Leader position and coordination of Year 9 Invictus and Year 10 Equip.
