30 Seconds with Peter Norman

Posted December 9, 2019 in Interviews & Spotlights, Teacher Spotlights By Richard Ryan

As a direct result of extensive feedback received from parents, students and staff there will be a new Head of Senior School to mirror the structure found in the Junior and Middle sub-schools. We took the opportunity to get to know Peter, who will take up the position in 2020.

 

Why Wesley?

I have always believed that Wesley is a fantastic school and a place that I would one day love to work. The opportunities presented to students at Wesley College are amazing and allow them to develop their gifts and talents to become the best they can be.

 

What are you most looking forward to?

I am most looking forward to getting to know the students, staff and parents and working with all members of the community to set a positive, caring, cultural tone in the Senior School.

 

What three items would you want if you were stranded on a desert island?

A big knife, a comfortable hammock and a signal mirror.

 

Who is your personal hero?

My beautiful daughter Rebekah, who passed away in 2017 after a courageous four and a half year fight with brain cancer. She is the bravest, most inspirational person I have ever met.

 

What book has influenced you the most?

Tough question, but probably Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It motivated me to start on my journey into educational leadership.
