Principal Selection Panel outcome

Dear parents, carers and school community

As you are aware we have been undertaking a recruitment process for the Principal role at Northern Bay P-12 College. The Selection process followed the requirements of the Ministerial Order and Principal Selection guidelines. The Selection panel was constituted of myself as Secretary’s delegate, a Principal representative, School Council President, Parent representative and staff representative. A rigorous selection process was undertaken.  The recommendation from the process has been endorsed by the Regional Director and approved by the Deputy Secretary of the Department.

I am writing to advise you that the outcome of this process has been a non-appointment. I appreciate that this is disappointing for all of us.

The region intends to undertake an extensive recruitment process commencing in January to ensure that we can attract candidates who provide evidence to demonstrate they meet the Selection criteria at the level required of an Executive Principal.

Whilst the recruitment process is underway, the Regional Director has appointed Scott Dellar to act as Principal for Term 1 2019. Scott is a highly experienced Principal with significant experience leading both P-12 and Secondary schools. We are confident that Scott will provide strong leadership of the college whilst a further recruitment process  is underway.

If you have further questions in relation to this matter, I can be contacted on the numbers below.

Kind regards
