Northern Bay College is starting the year with a new principal, Scott Diamond, who comes to the school from Surf Coast Secondary College.
“I am delighted to have been appointed as the Executive Principal of Northern Bay P-12 College and I am really looking forward to getting know the community,” Mr Diamond said.
“To me a school community is not just the students, their families and the staff within the five campuses. It is also the wider community of services, agencies, businesses and individuals providing partnerships and support to our college. I will undoubtedly take time familiarise myself with all five campuses, but know I have a great support team in leaders, teachers and education staff.
Mr Diamond said getting to know the students is at the top of the most exciting aspects of his new role and something he is looking forward to.
“My most recent position has been as founding Principal of Surf Coast Secondary College. The school has grown from the 120 students we began with in 2012 to just under 1000 students for 2020.
“This experience, along with my other professional experiences have helped me to believe that I am in a good position to provide supportive and strong hands-on leadership to and with the Northern Bay College community.
“With this in mind, I look forward to continuing the positive work that Fred Clarke established as the founding Principal of NBC and Scott Dellar fine-tuned in the last year.
“I am looking forward to the time ahead being rewarding for everyone at Northern Bay College in 2020 and the years to come. I will certainly be trying my utmost to help that to happen.”
