Welcoming New Staff and Faculty Leadership

At the end of 2017, Kristy Dawkins was appointed through a merit selection process as Gymea’s new Head Teacher of English. We welcome Ms Dawkins to our school leadership team and congratulate her on her new leadership appointment.

Ms Dawkins is already well known to many students and staff at the school as she has quickly earned the reputation as a quality teacher of English and History, as well as Society and Culture. Her strong understanding of these syllabuses coupled with her art of capturing the confidence of her students as she leads them through their learning, has enabled wonderful Higher School Certificate results and the development of an engaging English teaching and learning program aimed at the continual improvement of English for all students. Her students thrive and succeed in her classes and within her short time as the Head of English at Gymea, she has brought together a very capable, enthusiastic and professional faculty.

We also welcome a number of new permanent appointments to our school.

In English; Mr Loucopoulos who joined us from the beginning of the year and who is enjoying the wonderful kids in our school and the exciting things he can do to help them in our classroom. Mr Loucopoulos is also one of learning and support teachers and has assigned case loads of students he is providing targeted support for.

In Mathematics; Mr Jiang has also joined us from the beginning of the year and has already made a positive impression on his Mathematics students. Mr Jiang is one of the leading teachers in the development and delivery of our Mathematics acceleration program for year 10 students, implemented this year.
