FROM THE PRINCIPAL – Executive Director’s Message 

February 16, 2024

The following is an abridged version of our new Executive Director’s Message to all of our Catholic schools earlier in February. As with everyone in our schools we welcome Mr Bull to his new role in 2024.  

“Dear Colleagues, Parents and Friends of Catholic Education

The attached photograph shows my grandchildren, five of whom currently attend Catholic schools. My eldest grandchild graduated from a Catholic school at the end of 2022, and my two-year-old grandson will be attending his local Catholic school for pre-kindy in a couple of years. Apart from being most special to me, I am reassured by the quality of education which they receive in their respective schools. I know that they are cared for and guided in their educational journeys, irrespective of their unique gifts and talents. I thank all the staff who have and will continue to support them as they progress through their school years in Catholic education.

At the end of January, we welcomed and commissioned over 400 new school-based staff, who have been called to the vocation of working in Catholic education by providing Christ-centred and child-focused opportunities to our students. Our staff members are so important in supporting the academic, social, and spiritual growth of our 80,000 students. I congratulate and thank both our new and existing staff and wish them well for the year ahead. Over 10,000 staff work in our Catholic schools, always seeking to provide the best possible education for our students. 

Catholic schools are about authentic partnerships between parents, students, and staff. It is only when all members of our Catholic education communities work together that our children will have the opportunity to flourish and excel. We have already celebrated the excellence of some of our Year 12, 2023 high achievers at a special Academic Excellence celebration held at the Chapel of St Michael the Archangel in West Leederville.

Meeting these impressive young people from Catholic schools across the State confirmed for me that our schools give students opportunities, supported by our staff, to thrive and instil a spirit of service which encourages them to be contributing members of their communities. I wish all Year 12 graduates from 2023 every success as they begin the next phase of their lives.

I would like to wish everyone a happy, safe, and productive 2024 enriched by the support of our Catholic education system.” – Wayne Bull – Executive Director
