In July 2022 Lachie Wright announced that, after what will be 40 years as Head of Junior School, he will retire on 30 June 2023. This announcement resulted in a search process that attracted applications from Tasmania, interstate and overseas.
Knowing how important it will be to get the right person to lead our Junior School after the long and stellar leadership of Lachie Wright, the interview process has been a very thorough one. As a result of that process, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Ben Green will commence as our new Head of Junior School, beginning 1 July 2023.
Ben’s knowledge of the whole College, having taught and held leadership roles on both campuses, including Deputy Head of Junior School, Head of Middle School and Acting Deputy Principal, as well as his passion for the development of our students, position him perfectly to lead staff and prepare our students for their transition into the Middle School and beyond.
Ben’s appointment will result in the appointment of an Acting Head of Middle School for Semester Two this year and a search process to identify and permanently appoint a Head of Middle School, commencing 1 January 2024.
In the meantime, I am sure you will join me in congratulating Ben and wishing him all the very best, on his appointment as our next Head of Junior School.
