Mr Arthur Kelly to retire in 2019.
Deputy Headmaster Mr Arthur Kelly will retire from The Rockhampton Grammar School at the end of 2019, it was announced today by Headmaster Dr Phillip Moulds.
In a statement to the RGS Community, on behalf of the Board of Trustees of RGS, Dr Moulds said:
“Mr Kelly has served the School for 35 years with distinction, particularly in enhancing a pastoral care programme built on innovative, research and evidence-based educational practices and in enhancing our culture, and will leave our School well positioned for the future.
“The Rockhampton Grammar School has been very fortunate and blessed to be guided by Mr Kelly as both Deputy Headmaster and Head of the Middle School during this important period in the development of the School, and our community has benefitted from his educational and school community leadership and passion for students, learning and teaching.
“Mr Kelly rightly believes that the School is in a very strong position as one of the country's leading independent schools, and therefore now is the time to pass the baton to a new leader.
“The School will now embark upon a process to identify an outstanding educational leader from what we expect will be an exceptional field of candidates. We intend interviewing later this year to find our next Deputy to the Headmaster to lead the School into the future.
“There will be opportunity to thank and farewell Mr Kelly next year, and I hope you will join me as we honour and celebrate his wonderful legacy and the end of a very proud era in our history.”
