PRIN­CI­PAL

The Kids Post - - Private Education Guide 2014 -

H elen-Kay Davy was in­tro­duced as Haver­gal Col­lege’s 11th prin­ci­pal in April of this year. She joins the school with 32 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in teach­ing, which in­cludes time spent as head­mistress at the pres­ti­gious Hab­er­dash­ers’ Mon­mouth School for Girls (HMSG) in the UK.

She be­lieves that in­still­ing a sense of self-be­lief in her stu­dents is an im­por­tant at­tribute to nur­ture dur­ing their school­ing. “As an ed­u­ca­tor in an all-girls’ school, I be­lieve we need to teach girls to be ca­pa­ble, to pi­o­neer into cur­ric­u­lar and co-cur­ric­u­lar ar­eas that are new to them and feel com­fort­able in so do­ing, and to help them be proud of their many ac­com­plish­ments,” she says.

Having cel­e­brated HMSG’s 400th an­niver­sary ear­lier this year, she re­flects that the event “re­in­forced for me the im­por­tance of tra­di­tion and of having a proud con­tin­uum of talented and di­verse grad­u­ates as­so­ci­ated with one’s school,” she says, and notes that Haver­gal al­ready has its own con­tin­uum of over 9,000 Old Girls.

As a strong be­liever in life-long learn­ing, Davy has al­ready been busy in the devel­op­ment of Haver­gal’s next strate­gic plan with the Board and par­tic­i­pated in a num­ber of end-ofyear ac­tiv­i­ties.
