Above: One of those who were commissioned recently was Adam Taylor as he begins his term as principal of St Bernards College, Essendon. His commissioning was blessed by Bishop Terry Curtain.
It was not that long ago, that a new Principal to a Catholic Secondary School would move into the leadership role in quite a "low key" manner. Perhaps it was our cultural heritage to just move in, roll up the sleeves and get on with the job.
More recently we have seen important ritual associated with the installation of many Principals as they assume leadership of a school. The symbol of welcome as well as recognising the importance of the role is a significant development and provides a clear statement of the place of the Principal in their new community.
CaSPA warmly congratulates those who are taking up new appointments, and wishes them every blessing for their highly significant role in Catholic Education.
