New Principal announced

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Simon Vaughan to the position of Principal of Melrose High School.

Simon brings to this position extensive leadership experience across high school and college settings, most recently as Deputy Principal of Canberra College.  Simon's wealth of experience and achievement across a range of technical and interagency projects have initiated and delivered significant business improvement and success for staff and students alike. Simon's intentional focus on engaging all students in the life of the school will strongly support the student centred philosophy that has been developed at Melrose High School.

I am confident Simon will deliver strong outcomes while continuing to contribute to network and system thinking and improvement.

Please join me in congratulating Simon on his appointment.

Diane Joseph

Staff and students would like to thank Paul Branson for the leadership and friendship he has shown during his stay at Melrose.  We wish him well as he returns to Canberra High School.
