At the end of 2018, Andrew Watson will complete his term as Principal of Thomas Carr College in Melbourne's outer West and take up the role as Principal Consultant for the Ballarat Catholic Education Office. 

This will close a significant chapter in Andrew's professional life where he has served with distinction in Senior Leadership Roles in a number of schools including:

  • 2005-2010 Principal of Mercy Regional College, Camperdown, Victoria
  • 2011-2018 Principal of Thomas Carr College, Victoria

Both schools saw significant development while Andrew was Principal.  CaSPA Directors had the opportunity to see this first hand when Thomas Carr hosted the National Board in May of this year.

On top of the demanding work as Principal, Andrew has been exceptionally generous with his time having served both the local State Association - PAVCSS - and on the CaSPA  Board:

  • Four years on the CaSPA Board from 2015 to 2018
    • Held the following Offices - President, Vice President and Treasurer
  • Seven years on the PAVCSS Executive from 2012 to 2018
    • Held the following Offices - Secretary and Treasurer

Andrew has been an active advocate for his fellow CaSPA principals and an enthusiastic contributor to the National Education Agenda. He leaves CaSPA with the acknowledgment and respect of his peers for his great service to our profession.
