Congratulations to our Principal, Paul

Last month the Australian Council for Education Leaders [ACEL] Western Australia Branch announced their 2018 annual award winners representing those who have made outstanding contributions to educational leadership.

We are thrilled to let you know that our Principal, Paul Whitehead has been acknowledged with the ACEL WA Certificate of Excellence in Educational Leadership being recognised for his many years as an educational leader and practitioner as well as his achievements in leading the team at Bold Park Community School.

Paul’s wife Nadine and their children, Chayse (14) and Kaiden (12) were delighted to share in the evening celebrations with AISWA’s Ron & Wendy Gorman also in attendance. Paul was acknowledged at the ACEL West Australian Branch Annual Awards Ceremony by the Education Minister, Hon. Sue Ellery MLC.

Paul says, “Working as an educator or in school leadership is a great honour as you work with families, teams and individuals to connect ultimately with young lives … there is no greater celebration than having made a contribution (however small) in the minds and hearts of our precious children.”

Sinan Kerimofksi, ACEL WA Branch President stated, ‘I am delighted that ACEL WA is recognising these leaders in education through the ACEL WA Awards. They have had positive impacts on both educators and learners and are recognised as outstanding leaders in their field.’

“The shrewd guess, the fertile hypothesis, the courageous leap to a tentative conclusion - these are the most valuable coins of the thinker at work. But in most schools guessing is heavily penalized and is associated somehow with laziness.”
