Thank you Colin

Thank you Colin Image

As one principal begins in Southbank, another has said farewell.

After 17 years at the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School (VCASS), Colin Simpson is starting a new chapter as principal of the new Richmond High School.

Over his long journey at VCASS, Colin’s care and passion has helped cement the school’s reputation as the leading institution in arts education in Victoria.

Academically, the school has also developed into one of the highest performing in the state and it is with a heavy heart that he has said farewell to Southbank.

“It is true to say I have put my heart and soul into the school, aimed to create the most wonderful opportunity for young talented people,” he said.

“Our school has changed the conversation about arts in education and is now one of the most highly regarded schools in the state. We have an amazing school and programs and created a consistently high performing school with an outstanding reputation.”

While VCASS is sad to see him go, he said he was proud to have been trusted with the new $43 million Richmond High School project, which will also have a strong arts and humanities focus.

Southbank Local News thanks Colin for his long and valuable contribution to our local community and wishes him all the best for his new role.
