It is with some sadness that I say farewell to Durack School. I have been very proud to be the Principal of Durack School for nearly 6 years. It has been an exciting journey and we have achieved many things together however I know that I leave the school in good hands as I pass over to the incoming Principal, Mrs Joanne Jefferson.
Highlights for me are the quality teachers that we have at Durack; becoming an Independent Public School; Japanese language and culture program running from Preschool to Year 6; developing partnerships with CIC, Tennis NT and Golf NT; innovative programs (extension groups, afterschool tutoring etc); and the outstanding achievement of our students in areas ranging from poetry to sport. There will be more exciting things to come. We are currently in the process of drawing up plans for an aquaculture/ aquaponics facility at Durack and will be developing the sister school relationship with Kanai International School in Japan.
Durack has wonderful, supportive parents, an absolutely outstanding staff, a supportive and active School Board, and students who are just amazing. It has been a privilege working with you all.
