It is with great pleasure that Northside Christian College can announce the selection of Mr Damian Higgins as the new Principal of the College commencing in January 2018.
Mr Higgins currently serves as the founding Principal of Discovery Christian College, which is a growing Prep to Year 12 Christian College situated in Agnes Waters in Central Queensland. Mr Higgins has extensive experience in educational leadership in a variety of roles including Deputy Principal, Head of Secondary School, VCE Coordinator and Head of Middle School.
Prior to leading as a College Principal in Queensland, Mr Higgins worked at Heatherton Christian College in Victoria as a Deputy Principal / Head of Secondary School for seven years and Head of Middle School for four years. Heatherton Christian College is also a member of Christian Schools Australia (CSA).
Mr Higgins exemplifies the personal and professional character that our College community requires of the Principal. These qualities include a leader who is a dedicated Christian, empathetic, creative, able to relate effectively with people and one who will articulate Northside Christian College’s vision and inspire others to strengthen our school.
The College values the many years of educational leadership experience Mr Higgins has gained both in Australia and overseas. We know and believe that he will take up the baton from Mr Doug Holtam effectively, and lead our College into a new era of influence and strength.
During Term 3, the College community was advised that Mr Holtam had taken up a ‘God given’ opportunity as Principal of Freshwater Christian College in Queensland from January 2018. Again, we thank God for his time in leading our College so effectively and passionately.
Please join our College community in congratulating and welcoming Mr Higgins and thanking God for His faithfulness in securing an exceptional Christian leader for our great College.
