New Principal Announcement


Kim Manser has been selected as the new principal for Andrew Sibbald School for 2016-2017.


Kim is currently the Acting Principal at Haysboro School, and was the Assistant Principal at Prince of Wales School prior to assuming that role. She is a gifted leader and teacher, and brings a wealth of passion and talent to our school.


Kim is already familiar with Andrew Sibbald School through our strong relationship with Prince of Wales School, and our ongoing professional work together.


Over the next weeks and months I will have the pleasure of working alongside Kim in the transition to Sibbald. In this period we will ensure the parent population has a chance to meet the new principal.


Thank you in advance for the warm welcome you will provide to Kim as the new principal of our amazing school.


Kind Regards, Ian Fero
