Sydney’s Moriah College has dumped its policy of having the school run by a CEO and is now on the hunt for a new principal.

In a letter to parents, president Mark Schneider stated: “With an eye on the importance of curtailing costs and thereby school fees in these straightened times, it has been agreed that it is now in the College’s best interests for the position of College CEO to be made redundant.”

The current Principal and CEO, Kim Fillingham, will leave the school at the end of this term. He will remain available to Moriah College in a consultative role.

Schneider also wrote:

“The Board notes that, amongst the objectives that have been achieved, in addition to a strong and cohesive College senior management team, are:

  • the whole of College approach in all of its activities, both in Jewish Life and Learning and secular programs;
  • a restructured management team in Middle School to enhance its operation;
  • commencing the journey in identifying and developing the Moriah approach to 21st century learning including Quality Teaching and enhanced integrated usage of Information Technology;
  • an approach to student wellbeing that is based on Jewish values;
  • a more inclusive approach to the education of children with special needs; and
  • a commitment to welcome parents as partners in the learning programs through a change in the communication style with parents and in seeking parent views.

The Board thanks Kim for his commitment to Moriah and commends him for the professional manner in which he has discharged his duties over the past three years.
