Special Principal's Blog - 31 March 2017

31 Mar 2017

Dear members of the Marcellin College family,

I write to explain an important process the College is about to institute regarding the position of Deputy Principal at Marcellin. Adriano Di Prato has been a highly competent and innovative Deputy Principal and an outstanding servant of our College for the past ten years.

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. At the end of 2017, Adriano will have completed two five-year terms in the role, thus, MSA require the position be advertised externally.

To this end, the position of Deputy Principal of Marcellin College will be advertised both internally and externally beginning this weekend.

I look forward to communicating the outcome of this process in the weeks ahead.

Mark Murphy
