Dear Parents and College Community Members,

RE: Appointment of Neville Grieger as Principal of Navigator College

On the 2nd of December, 2015 I wrote to you advising of the resignation of Mrs Kaye Mathwin- Cox, following her appointment as Director of Research and Development with Lutheran Education Australia, after seven exceptional years as Principal.

Today, I am very pleased to announce the appointment of our Second Principal for Navigator College, Mr Neville Grieger.

The Board was most impressed with the quality of candidates who applied for the Interim Principal position, however the Principal position was awarded to Neville, based on his breadth of experience, significant skills and exceptional expertise.

Neville is currently the Assistant Director, Lutheran Education Vic, NSW & TAS. Prior to this Neville was Spiritual Development Facilitator with Lutheran Schools Association SA, NT, WA and was Principal of Unity College in Murray Bridge, where he grew enrolments from 500 to over 1000 students. Neville holds a Bachelor of Education, Master of Education, is a Lutheran Education Australia Accredited Leader, Fully trained and Nationally Accredited Mediator, and an Accredited Pathways Facilitator, amongst other qualifications, experiences and capabilities. He will make an exceptional Principal for Navigator College.

The Board is very excited about working with Neville and we look forward to introducing him to those of you who don’t already know him, as Neville was instrumental in supporting Navigator in its pre and beginning years. He hopes to spend time in the College later this term so he can meet with the students and staff. Neville will commence as Principal in Term 2 of this year.

We look forward to welcoming Neville and his wife Jenny to our College community next term. Yours Sincerely

Kingsley Macdonald
2015 College Council Chairperson
