Out­go­ing prin­ci­pal mov­ing to Syd­ney

Joondalup Weekender - - Opinion -

ST STEPHEN’S School prin­ci­pal Tony Ge­orge has been ap­pointed as head­mas­ter of The King’s School in Syd­ney.

He will con­tinue with St Stephen’s School, which is WA’s largest in­de­pen­dent school with cam­puses in Car­ra­mar and Dun­craig, un­til the end of term 2 next year.

The King’s School is Aus­tralia’s old­est in­de­pen­dent school and one of only eight schools in the coun­try in the G20 as­so­ci­a­tion of sec­ondary schools.

“Just like St Stephen’s School, The King’s School has an out­stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion for aca­demic suc­cess while fo­cus­ing on the char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment of ev­ery stu­dent,” he said.

“The com­mu­nity we have built to­gether at St Stephen’s School is vi­brant, in­no­va­tive and in­spired and th­ese strengths have been recog­nised by The King’s School.”

St Stephen’s School coun­cil chair­man Brian Han­d­ley said Mr Ge­orge was a vi­sion­ary ed­u­ca­tor.

“He has been in­stru­men­tal in de­vel­op­ing St Stephen’s School’s ped­a­gog­i­cal and pas­toral care prac­tices, teacher de­vel­op­ment, in­te­grated use of tech­nol­ogy and re­in­forced school-based ser­vice learn­ing for stu­dents,” he said.

“With education in Aus­tralia un­der­go­ing sig­nif­i­cant change over the past decade, Tony has also been in­flu­en­tial in build­ing the fi­nan­cial man­age­ment of the school.”
