After 20 years of dedicated service as the Principal of Andale School, Ms Marg Cotter has advised the School Council of her resignation.
The School Council seeks to attract a credible educational leader and relationship builder who has significant experience in developing, implementing and evaluating programs for students who have found it difficult to adapt to the educational and social demands of mainstream education. With whole of school responsibility, the Principal will make a commitment to the professional development of staff while championing the school in the broader community.
Reporting to the Chair and the Andale School Council the appointee will manage the direction of the school and play a key role in collaboration among teachers, staff, students and families to steward the future development of each student with consideration for appropriate pathways beyond Andale. The ideal candidate will be a contemporary thinker who is able to take staff, the School Council and parents on the journey to what is possible for each student. The successful candidate will demonstrate a passion for special education and possess the experience to review and develop curriculum that will cover key learning areas and support students with ongoing learning and social development needs. Ensuring the standard of service and education is maintained at the highest possible level will be a key element of this role.
Andale School is a small independent school for children with language and learning disorders who are not able to learn effectively in the mainstream school setting. The school’s mission is to develop in each child a level of social and cognitive competence to enable them to develop and participate successfully in a range of social and educational contexts.
The school’s approach to education stems from an understanding of the whole child and promotes learning equally across all developmental domains: social and emotional cognitive, language and physical.
