A new position has been created to lead our Global Education team. Wendy Grant, our current Director of Curriculum, is moving into the newly created position of Director of International Programs. Wendy has been Director of Curriculum for 20 years and during this time has been responsible for many successful changes to our Firbank Learning Programs. Wendy is very excited about taking on the challenges of this position. Make sure you view the video to learn more about this new role.
Whilst this new position takes our Firbank brand global, importantly the International Education Program is responsible for bringing a sizeable amount of funding into the Firbank Foundation. These funds are an extremely valuable source of income that continues to ensure we provide the means to upgrade and replace older buildings and amenities, so that our Firbank infrastructure matches the delivery of our curriculum programs. The Foundation funding also provides scholarships to enable students to attend Firbank who would not otherwise have been able to benefit from a Firbank education.
We will be replacing Wendy with the best possible person to become Firbank’s new Director of Curriculum and Future Learning. As per our strategic focus, outstanding teaching is the key to successful Student Achievement so the Director will also have a focus on Future Learning strategies.
