New CaSPA Director nominated from South Australia

Posted on 2 December 2017
New CaSPA Director nominated from South Australia

The South Australian Catholic Secondary Principals Association [APCSS] has nominated a new Director to serve on the CaSPA Board. As an incorporated entity, the CaSPA Board members do not act as representatives of their States or Territories as such. Their role is to work in the interest of all Catholic Principals in Secondary Schools across Australia, as per the guidelines for Directors in the Corporations Act which governs the activities of Public Companies Limited by Guarantee such as CaSPA.

The new Director is Dr Paul Rijken current Principal of Cardjin College in Adelaide.  Paul has also recently taken on the responsibility of overseeing the operations of Marcellin Technicl College in addition to his role at Cardjin College.

In recent years, Paul has also served as a Commissioner on the Sth Australian Commission for Cathoilic Schools [SACCS]. He comes to the CaSPA Board having just finished his term of President of the APCSS.

Paul replaces Brian Schumacher who came on to the Board at the beginning of 2017 but now moves off the Board in order to replace Paul as president of APCSS and also devote time to his new appointment as Principal of Rostrevor College.  We thank Brian for his all too brief time as a Director.

Paul includes in his areas of special interest:

  • Educational Research and Curriculum
  • How schools/school systems measure affectiveness and impact

and is currently undertaking post Doctoral studies in these areas at Curtin University.
