Since our last newsletter, it has been announced that the current Santa Maria College Principal, Ian Elder, has resigned from his position of Principal and will leave the College at the end of this year. It is Ian’s eighth year as Principal and over this time he has been an asset to the College and demonstrated strong leadership, the power of action, a kind, caring heart and the ability to live in the true spirit of Mercy.
Ian provides valuable guidance to students, teachers and the College community and supported the Santa Maria Old Girls’ Association and inspired me in my role as President of the OGA.
On behalf of the OGA, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to Ian and wish him and his wife Lesley all the best for their future endeavours. You will be missed.
