It is with great pleasure that I announce that the Marist Schools Council has given approval for the Board’s request to appoint Dr Mark Potterton as the Principal of the Primary School from January next year. Dr Potterton is extremely well qualified for this position. He has served as the Director of the Catholic Institute of Education and the Chief Operating Officer of Umalusi. He joins us after five years as the Principal of Holy Family College in Parktown. We are lucky to have someone of his calibre as a replacement for Mrs Picas. He has been involved in educational projects throughout South Africa and Lesotho and has authored many articles and books on educational issues. Dr Potterton previously taught at Sacred Heart College and was part of the Integrated Studies team of the 1980s where he was involved in writing one of the textbooks used for that curriculum. He is very excited to be able to work with younger children and looks forward to getting to know the parents.
We look forward to welcoming him next year.
Head of College
