Voluntary redundancies

Yesterday in our staff meeting we confirmed the upcoming departures of the following staff:

  • Alison Lugg
  • Diana Whyley
  • Gordon Flynn
  • Josephine Ng
  • Judy Heard
  • Loretta Staffieri
  • Lynette Weber
  • Nicky Carr
  • Ray Rozen
  • Ronnie Luk
  • Sarah Hudson
  • Yolanda Berecz

As we noted, each of these staff has contributed substantially to our school community, with rich and long careers of service to education. There is much knowledge, expertise, and commitment within this group that will be a loss to the SoEd and RMIT.

In conversations with each of these colleagues I have been struck by the common themes of commitment to and joy in their work and the great pleasure they have found in relationships with colleagues. Although I know the decision to leave was not an easy one for any of these staff, all have communicated a consistent and positive sense of excitement about their future. While we will be working through our own sadness at their upcoming departures I know we all wish them well.

Departure dates will range from September through to December. We will be working on ways to acknowledge our colleagues who are leaving, to celebrate the contributions of each and wish them all the best for the future.
