To the magnificent team at the IEU just a brief note to mention that I have retired from the workforce as of the beginning of Term 4 2016.
I’m more than happy to pass the baton onto the next generation. I started a fabulous career at Parramatta Marist High in 1980 and am thrilled to have been a ‘one club player’ after finishing there.
The highlights have been the tremendous experiences shared with the students, parents and staff.
In this complex world, to me from day one, it’s been about keeping the kids safe and happy and trying to help set them up for life. To be entrusted with that huge responsibility by parents and colleagues meant a lot to me.
I wish to acknowledge the tremendous work, dedication and sweat that the Union puts in. The gang at the Parramatta office have treated me and cared for me like family. I would not have enjoyed my stint and been as productive without their support.
To all the staff, a huge ‘thank you’ for your unyielding expertise. You always made me feel safe. May God bless you and your families. My prayers and thoughts are with you always.
