I am delighted to advise that Ms Damaris Patterson will succeed Mrs Bev Galloway as our Head of Early Childhood and Junior School from the beginning of 2018. Ms Patterson is an experienced and passionate educator and leader and has been employed as the Director of Junior School at Canberra Girls Grammar School since 2007. Ms Patterson will continue to build on Mrs Bev Galloway's outstanding work over the past 16 years, focusing on the needs of the whole child and enabling each student to flourish in our school environment.
Ms Patterson is very much looking forward to the challenge that this role offers and to meeting members of our community in the near future. Families will have the opportunity to meet with Ms Patterson at some of our special end of year events over the coming months. I am sure you will join me in welcoming her to our school.
