Message from the Principal
Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends,
Stuartholme welcomed our new Commercial Director, Laura Jones, this week. Laura brings with her eight years of experience in commercial management and management consulting for multinational organisations. Laura also brings a passion for women’s leadership and was nominated for the Zonta Prize for most outstanding female graduate in her Master’s degree of Business Administration (MBA). Laura was also able to use her leadership skills in other ways through establishing the first all-girls BMX coaching clinics in Australia. In addition to managing Stuartholme’s commercial interests, Laura will be responsible for overseeing our capital works programs, including the new sports facility.
This year 11 November marks the 98th anniversary of the Armistice and as a school community we paused to remember those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts. As I paused for a moments silence at 11am the words of Laurence Binyon always come to mind,
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
Kristen Sharpe, Principal
