Mr. Ian Dickinson, will be leaving BBI at the end of 2014, to embark on a wonderful journey as Principal of Pigeon Mountain Primary School. It is always with regret that you lose a leader or any staff member at BBI, however if it is for promotion then ‘we’ can all say that it was the team who assisted in this promotion. The excitement for BBI is to extend the arm between the two schools and know that the links across and within the schools can be strengthened. Ian has been Deputy Principal at BBI for almost 6 years and it certainly will be important to continue our professional discussions and partnership. It is worth noting, that Ian is following a Principal who once was the DP at BBI and I am sure he will value the legacy that Mr Ginty Bigwood has left behind. All the best Ian and “Reach for the heights”!
Following this we are delighted to announce that Mrs. Phebe Rossiter will take up the position of Acting Deputy Principal in 2015.
I would also like to welcome a new Specialist Team to BBI.
Farewell to our retirees, Mr Guy Marrett and Mrs Heather Jack, who have given our school many years of their career. We are also farewelling Miss Kerry Scurr who is moving to the North Shore. They certainly will be missed and have left their mark of excellence. We welcome Mr Regan Smith – Workshop, Mrs Beth McCrystal – Food/Hospitality, Miss Hannah Walker – Textiles/Design, Miss Kay MacKenzie – Music.
