director – Student Experience
Mike commenced at Caulfield Grammar School in October 2015. Following a period of induction in Melbourne, he headed to Nanjing, China to take up his position as the Head of Nanjing Campus.
During this time, he led the Campus team in significant program developments reinforcing the program’s original learning intentions in a rapidly changing Chinese landscape. During this time, the Nanjing Campus team further established the School’s renowned reputation across the Yangtze River Delta by cementing established bonds while also creating new opportunities through new relationships.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Mike returned to Australia to lead the establishment of remote residential programs in domestic locations. Mike is passionate about providing immersive and impactful learning experiences for students, and now oversees the strategic development and operational direction of remote student experiences across the School.
Mike was previously Deputy Headmaster of Toowoomba Preparatory School between 2010 and 2015, and then at Anglican College (now Toowoomba Anglican School). During his tenure, the School transitioned from being a preparatory boarding school for students from ELC to Year 7 into a co-educational ELC to Year 12 boarding school. It remains Australia’s only boarding school for children of all school year levels, serving families from across Australia’s vast central and western interior.
