Headmaster of Wellington College to retire in 2018

The Wellington College Board of Trustees has today announced that Headmaster Roger Moses has decided to retire from his position at the end of the first term in April 2018.

Board Chair Peter Schuyt said the school and its community would be extremely sad to see Roger leave.

“Over Roger’s 22-year tenure, our school has gone from strength-to-strength in its academic, sporting and arts performance.

“We respect Roger’s decision and will now commence the search for an experienced leader to fill the considerable gap that he leaves.  We will be looking for someone with the skill and passion to educate and empower our young men, “ Mr Schuyt said.

Mr Moses said:  “This is a personal decision and, while I am sad to be leaving the school that I love, it is the right one for myself, my family and for the school.

“At our 150th celebrations this year, I will also mark my own 22nd anniversary at Wellington College.  These past years have been challenging and rewarding and I have been privileged to be part of a wonderful school community.”

“I will leave confident in the knowledge that the school is in a strong position.”

Mr Moses indicated he is looking forward to having additional time with his family and intends to continue to be involved in education and leadership.

Mr Schuyt said Mr Moses’ finishing at the end of the first term in April 2018 would give the Board of Trustees plenty of time to find a new Headmaster and to ensure a smooth transition.

“We will also be celebrating Roger’s tenure and our school community will be an integral part of that, “ he said.
