St Aloysius' appointment of new Principal
I am pleased to advise that the Provincial of the Jesuits, Rev Fr Steve Curtin SJ and the Chair of the College Council, the Hon Tim Studdert QC (SAC 1952), have formally announced the appointment of Mr Mark Tannock to be the first lay Principal of St Aloysius' College. Attached, please find a copy of the official announcement. The document also includes a letter from Mr Tannock to the Aloysian Family detailing a little about himself and his experience.
Mr Tannock will commence duties in the New Year and will officially take over the role of Principal of the College at the end of Term I, 2014. He will use the time in Term I to transition into life at the College. He will at times shadow Father Middleton SJ and also participate in an Ignatian formation process with me in the lead up to his start date.
The College is about to commence an exciting phase of our 135 year history. I know that you will join with me in making Mr Tannock and his family welcome at the College.
On Sunday, 23 March 2014 the College will host the official Farewell Event for Father Middleton, at which time we will give thanks to a person who has given so much to the Aloysian Family, especially over the past eleven years. Further details of this event will be forthcoming closer to the date.
With kind regards,
Fr Peter Hosking SJ
