Goodbye Mr Paul Southwell! You will be missed! And not just for your book week antics!

Posted 09 May, 2019

Collegians would like to say a big thank you to Paul for his dedicated service over the past 12 years! You have a place in many hearts and will be missed at the College!
Students and other community members are warmly invited to celebrate and acknowledge Mr Southwell’s contribution to the College over the past 12 years on Friday 14 June, 12pm, TB Millar Hall, RSVP not required.

Fiona Godfrey announced in a recent College Bulletin that Mr Paul Southwell will be finishing up at the College.

She wrote:

It is with sadness that I write my final Bulletin article for Term One with the news that Mr Paul Southwell has tendered his resignation from Radford College.

Paul has had an enormous impact on Radford College over the past 12 years. As the inaugural Head of Junior School, he was originally tasked with writing curriculum, developing policies and procedures, selecting staff, inducting students and overseeing the building works.

Over the ensuing years, Paul has worked with tireless energy to develop the Junior School into one of Canberra’s leading schools. He has always been very passionate about his students, showed great respect for his staff and has built wonderful relationships with parents.

As a member of the Senior Executive team, Paul has had a major impact on the strategic direction of the College. He has always had a great appetite for putting educational research into action and has thrived on implementing new ideas and theories into the Junior School.

 We will miss Paul’s contributions greatly and he leaves with our very best wishes for the future. We are delighted Paul will still be a part of our Radford community as a parent.

Collegians would also like to pass on our thanks to Paul and wish him all the best! He has seen a number of students now graduate from the College that began in the Junior School when it first opened. Collegians will always remember his fast pace, forever running (literally) and fun loving passion for the Radford Junior School. The traditions and foundations he set in the Junior School will remain forever cherished!
