Following a process of advertising for a new Principal and receiving applicants from a strong field of candidates, the College Committee of Management Chairman, Raff Marcucci, announced this week that our current Deputy Principal, Mr Michael Bond, has been appointed as the new Principal of Northside Christian College commencing in 2022.

Michael is passionate about Christian education, and has made significant contributions to policy development, compliance, and Senior School leadership (Years 10-12).
