Position : Director of Student Wellbeing
Sort : 9

I first began teaching at Redlands College in 1996. Over the following 22 year period I spent almost half of it working in different educational contexts overseas (West Africa & India). However, when back in Australia my family and I are based at Redlands College. During those years of service at Redlands College I have held many different positions; Head of Physical Education, Head of Middle School, Dean of Christian and Cultural Formation, and this year I have taken on a new role as the Director of Student Wellbeing.

In this position I lead a very dedicated team of staff who look after a wide variety of student wellbeing services; Counselling, Chaplaincy, Learning Enrichment, Sickbay, Behavioural Management, and Pathways advice. They all bring a wealth of experience to their positions and are dedicated to seeing our students flourish.

Student wellbeing has become such an important focus of schooling in the 21st century. I feel privileged to have this role and wish to see Redlands College be known for how well it cares for its students.
