Next School Principal Announced

From the Chairman of the Board of Governors

The Board has invited Mr Gerard Foley to be the next Principal of Ivanhoe Grammar School and he has accepted. Mr Foley will assume the role towards the end of the year to coincide with the start of the Early Commencement Program.

Gerard has been with Ivanhoe Grammar School since 2008, serving as Head of The Ridgeway Campus and from 2011 as Deputy Principal. During 2014 Mr Foley was Acting Principal for approximately five months during Mr Fraser’s sabbatical leave. Prior to joining our School, Mr Foley served as Head of Senior School at Overnewton Anglican Community College.

I would like to congratulate Mr Foley on his forthcoming appointment and look forward to working with him during the transition and beyond.

I would like to sincerely thank the members of the sub-committee who oversaw the search process and worked tirelessly and diligently to ensure the very best outcome for the School. I would also like to thank all those who put themselves forward for the role and particularly those who gave their time through the interview process. Your contribution was extremely important to the final outcome. This will be Mr Fraser’s last year as Principal and I would again like to acknowledge his enormous contribution over the past 20 years. We will be making arrangements to suitably farewell Mr Fraser and his wife Sandy later in the year and I look forward to sharing details of those events as they are put in place.

Yours sincerely

Mr Peter T Kempen


Board of Governors
