New Head, Experienced Shoulders.
I believe that good teaching and learning is at the forefront of all that we do. It is sacred and at the core of the collective thinking and resourcing. Every individual in the College has the right to learn and grow. Every lesson, every experience should be an opportunity to learn and develop, both inside and outside the classroom.
If you’d like to know more about Wesley, I warmly invite you to make contact and find out more about this special College.
I am a proud West Australian, spending my formative years in Kalgoorlie, before finishing high school in Perth. My wife, Narelle, is also a WA country girl, born in Three Springs, before spending most of her childhood in Geraldton. We have two children: Abbey, 17 and Mitchell, 14 years old. I am pleased and at times surprised that both Abbey and Mitchell still enjoy going on holidays with us in our old caravan whenever we can.
I have been fortunate that my family has supported me in the various roles I have had in education and my involvement with various community groups. They are also looking forward to being part of the vibrant and engaging Wesley community.
What kind of Head is Ross
My leadership style is to consult and learn, not to impose any preconceived ideas of what Wesley College should be. I pride myself on an ability to build high functioning teams that have a clear, shared vision and a framework that allows them to flourish and develop their own style and leadership capabilities. I am a leader who is present, being at the school gates, in classes, rehearsals, concerts, sport, and parent functions and events.
