College announces departure of Mr Phillip O’Regan – we wish him all the best in his new role
Phillip O'Regan will be finishing up at Radford this term, as he has accepted the role of Deputy Principal and Head of Secondary School at Knox Grammar School in Sydney.
This is an excerpt from an Announcement from the Principal to the Radford College community this week.
It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that I have recently received the resignations of both Phillip and Charlotte O’Regan. Phillip has accepted the role of Deputy Principal and Head of Secondary School at Knox Grammar School in Sydney, and Charlotte and their three children, Wynter, Tully and Finn will be relocating to Sydney to join Phillip in his new role. Knox Grammar School is a very large and well-known, day and boarding boys’ school, located on the upper north shore of Sydney.
Whilst Phillip will finish Term 1 at Radford, Charlotte has made the difficult decision to finish her work at Radford in four weeks’ time, to assist the family with the relocation.
Charlotte and Phillip have each made a significant contribution to the College in the nearly four years they have been here. Phillip has had an enormous impact on the successful running of the Secondary School and in particular, has taken a lead role in the review of the Co-curricular Program, been instrumental in the changes to the Outdoor Education Program, made significant changes to the student leadership structure, and been pivotal in the development of the national and international exchange programs. Charlotte has been a wonderful teacher of Junior School art and was recently appointed to the role of Assistant Head of Junior School, Innovation and Excellence.
Though there is no doubt that our school will be poorer for the departure of the O’Regan family, the College has already begun a national search for a new Deputy Principal and Head of Secondary School. The Assistant Head of Junior School, Innovation and Excellence role will also be advertised shortly.
The Collegians Association would like to wish the O’Regan’s all the best and know many of our younger Collegians will have extremely fond memories of Mr O’Regan as Head of Secondary School.
