Middle School Staff Farewells
I would like to take the opportunity in this final Thistle to thank and farewell four Middle School Staff who are leaving us at the end of the year:
- Ms Anna Eriksson has been with Middle School for the whole exciting eight year journey working as Year 6 teacher, Maths Enrichment specialist, MYP Coordinator and finally as Dean of Teaching & Learning. Anna has been a tireless worker and advocate for Middle School and our boys. We wish her well on her new adventures.
- Mrs Katie Frampton has been with Middle School for the eight year journey too, commencing as our Art teacher, becoming our Art and Cooking teacher and finally running the magnificent Food Design centre we have in Middle School. To say our boys have loved Food Design classes is an understatement and testimony to Katie's innovative approach to the subject. Katie is moving to Iona Presentation College in Mosman Park.
- Ms Jo Walden leaves after three years at Scotch in Middle School delivering Art to Years 6, 7 and 8. One of Jo's great legacies will be the glass programme that emerged in our new facility last year and the commissioning of the mural on the wall of the MacKellar Hall. Jo is moving to St James' Anglican School in Alkimos.
- Ms Vicki Ward after 11 years at Scotch has decided to pack up and move to the cool and green of Tasmania. Vicki has taught widely across the College spending the last seven years in Middle School. Vicki will be remembered as much for her passionate concern about the environment as for getting her students to dance their way out of class at the end of each day.
Mr Richard Ledger
Head of Middle School
