From the CEO

Greetings from Townsville, Qld.  I am currently spending some time with the board and staff at Annandale Christian College where they are embarking on a time of transition. Jenny Ballment has faithfully served as principal at Annandale Christian College for over 27 years (is that a record?) and is soon to hand over the reins to Dan Clarke who hails from WA. There is both excitement and caution as the school steps through this time of change.  I find it such a privilege to be sharing in this time with the staff and board of a growing and vibrant school in sunny north Qld.  I might have to stay a little longer . . .
