As part of the International School network, each year we farewell staff moving on to new schools and new adventures. We thank them for their contribution to Prem and wish them well for the future.
- David Kavanagh joined the boarding team in August 2013. Dave had been working as a Boarding House Assistant and Music teaching Assistant at Chetham School of Music. Dave has contributed to the boarding programme and maintained a level of consistency throughout his year, with his main project being the annual boarding community assembly. We will miss his ukulele playing in the clusters! We understand that Dave will be travelling for the first few months back in England, and we wish him safe travels.
- Emily Corrigan Doyle came to Prem with a First Class BA Honours Degree in Visual Communication (Design) from the School of Art, Design and Printing in Dublin, and a First Class Masters in Design from Goldsmiths, University of London. Emily has worked well with the girls in boarding, and has also made a wonderful contribution to the boarding community, leaving us with a very attractive mural in the boarding lounge. Emily will be continuing her studies in England and we wish her good luck for the future.
- Francesca Fletcher came to Prem with a First Class BA Honours Degree in English Literature. Fran has worked with the Student Support team in the school and for her Personal Project in boarding, Fran, with her room-mate Rosie, have compiled and put into practice an amazing Community Service program, working with Hope House and Daughters Rising. This has ensured that all of our boarding students have completed their community service requirement. Fran will return to England to continue with her studies.
- Neil Davidson, HPE Teacher, Boarding House Parent
In the Senior School A. Neil has made many valuable contributions in his two years at Prem. He has taught MYP Health and Physical Education with great energy and enthusiasm and as a coach across a range of sports, most notably football, he has worked effectively with his teams always helping them improve and play together with passion and team spirit.
In his role in the boarding community, Neil has made a valued contribution with both his ability to support and listen to the students, and in his use of sport as a medium to release energy, stress and frustration. Neil is very much a team player and his realistic insights and positive approach to students’ behaviour will be missed.
