Western Australia’s seventh biggest private school John XXIII College is seeking a new principal after announcing its leader of the past nine years, Anne Fry, has taken a position in Sydney.
The 1,500-student school, chaired by BHP Billiton WA vice president corporate affairs Julius Matthys, has appointed Melbourne-based executive search firm Fish & Nankivell to recruit a new principal.
Mrs Fry has been appointed as principal of St Vincent’s College, a catholic girls’ school founded by the Sisters of Charity.
Co-educational John XXIII was established in 1977 as an amalgamation of the Jesuit-founded St Louis boys’ school and Loreto Convent girls’ school. It moved to its present campus in Mt Claremont 1986.
