The ASPA Board will transition to a new Board Chair at the December Board meeting.
Sheree Vertigan was appointed Board Chair when ASPA transitioned to a Company Limited by Guarantee. The Board wants to express their gratitude to Sheree for her distinguished work to ASPA (as Executive member, Deputy President, President and Chair of the Board) and to public secondary education nationally. She oversaw significant reform and has continued to provide guidance and valuable input in her role as Board Chair after completing her tenure as President and later Executive Director.
I would also like to acknowledge the huge support and mentorship Sheree provided to me personally and to numerous school leaders nationally. Sheree is a passionate advocate for public secondary schools and school leaders. Thank you for your continued commitment to ASPA and public secondary education.
Peter Crawford has also resigned from his position as Company Secretary and taken up a position as Academic Director, Shanghai Jiaoda Nanyang High School - an International School in Shanghai. Peter was Secretary Treasurer of ASPA commencing in 2007 and became the Company Secretary when ASPA transitioned to a Company Limited by Guarantee. I would like to thank Peter for his contribution to ASPA and public secondary education nationally. I would also like to acknowledge Peter’s support to me as Executive Director and wish him the best in his new endeavours.
