The proof to me, as a parent, of Joyce’s high performance as a Principal was her consistent ability to employ and retain long-term and excellent staff. Her team was always diverse and interesting, motivated, and simply great at teaching.
The proof to me, as a board member and chair, of Joyce’s capabilities as a manager and leader was her consistent understanding of the school finances, staff, systems, and her clarity around the strategic direction of the school.
My thoughts to the students and many parents at my final assembly as Chairperson were: “Joyce’s leadership is a lovely balance of professionalism, good humour, and fairness. Joyce is highly recommended as a manager and leader.”
