Executive Principal Appointed for The Moreton Bay Colleges
A new Principal has been announced to lead the prestigious bayside colleges of Moreton Bay College (MBC) and Moreton Bay Boys’ College (MBBC), now collectively termed The Moreton Bay Colleges. The announcement was made to staff and families on their return from school holidays this week. Mr James Sloman, currently Principal of a large Brisbane Independent Public School will commence his employment on December 1. The position has become available after the resignation early this year of Principal Ms Jennifer Haynes due to ill health.
Acting Principal Dr Murray Evans met with the combined staff of both colleges and announced the appointment to the Colleges’ community this week saying “We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Mr James Sloman to the role of Executive Principal. He has a renowned reputation for high level strategic leadership, entrepreneurship, corporate governance and has strong links to the tertiary and business community.”
Mr Sloman currently holds the position of Executive Principal at Mansfield State High School which has an outstanding reputation for leadership, cultural excellence and academic success.
Mr Sloman brings to his new role a demonstrated commitment to continuous school improvement and to 21st century learning attributes and outcomes. He is held in high esteem in education circles and is a strong supporter of independent schools. Over the last four years he has led the transition of Mansfield State High to an Independent Public School.
Mr Sloman said “I am excited about the opportunities presented to lead two single-sex schools and bringing the benefits of this educational model to the community in a co-ordinated, collaborative way.”
The Moreton Bay Colleges’ community is eager to commence a new era following the launch in July of the Joint Strategic plan. Both colleges were recently ranked by The Australian (June 21-22, 2014) in the top 50 schools nationwide.
