It is with great pleasure that we welcome our new principal, Basil, to the Clairvaux community. We look forward to working with him and seeing what great things he can contribute to our school and community. We would also like to thank Nat and Sarah for all their hard work during Term 2.
A message from Basil…
I am very excited about coming to Clairvaux and the welcome has been quite amazing. Thanks to Fr Vince and the selection panel for this opportunity. Clairvaux is highly regarded and I feel very fortunate to be here. While I have had the opportunity to visit a few times over the years you do not realize how spacious the buildings and grounds are, it truly is a fantastic facility that we are very lucky to have. I look forward to getting to know the Clairvaux community and working with you to ensure our school is the best it can be.
I would like to congratulate Carolyn Kelly for her leadership and direction over the past five years. During my career I worked with Carolyn in two different schools and I have always admired her professionalism and work ethic. I would like to thank Nat, firstly for the great job she has done over the past few months and also for making my transition so easy. Nat is a very competent leader who is highly regarded and she should be very proud of the work she has done.
Already I can sense the calm and positive feel that exists here and I am very impressed with what Clairvaux is and how it functions.
As Confirmation will be celebrated on August 10, Bishop Long will be visiting our candidates next week and I wish them well as they prepare for this very special time.
Have a great week.
