Office of the Principal - Deputy Principal Appointment

11 May 2017

Dear members of the Marcellin College Family,

You may have recently been aware that the role of Deputy Principal of Marcellin College had been externally advertised.

The Marist Brothers exercise their governance of the College through Marist Schools Australia (MSA). The National Director of MSA is responsible for the approval of the appointment of the Principal, Deputy Principal and Business Manager at Marcellin College. Under MSA guidelines, the Deputy Principal position, which is a five-year appointment, can be extended upon their recommendation for one additional five-year period. After that, the position must be externally advertised.

An extensive application and interview process which involved a panel that included Paul Herrick (Regional Director, MSA), Vick Myers (Principal’s Consultant, CEM) and Teresa Lincoln (Co-Principal, Kilbreda College) and myself has now been completed.

I am pleased to announce that Adriano Di Prato has been reappointed as Deputy Principal of Marcellin College for the next 5 years.

Adriano is a highly committed, creative and passionate member of our College Leadership Team. He always has the needs of our students at the centre of his focus and concern. I congratulate Adriano on his reappointment and wish him well as he continues to support the growth and development of our College.

Yours sincerely,


Mark Murphy
Principal
