New Headmaster for St Patrick's College in 2015

The Board of St Patrick’s College is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr John Crowley as the new Headmaster of St Patrick’s College from the commencement of 2015.

Mr Crowley, the current Principal of Marian College in Ararat, will take over from Dr Peter Casey who retires after 13 years as Headmaster and 30 years of principalship.

St Patrick’s College Board Chair, Mr Andrew Byrne says Mr Crowley is well qualified having spent the last five years as Principal of Marian College and  over 20 years teaching experience.

“John’s leadership and innovation at Marian College has resulted in extensive improvements and enhancements for the benefit of all and we are delighted to have him at the helm of St Patrick’s College next year”, said Mr Byrne.

Mr Byrne said Mr Crowley is extremely well-regarded by the Marian College school community as well as the Ballarat diocesan community and the Brigidine Sisters who are the governors of Marian College.

St Patrick’s College Headmaster, Dr Peter Casey says he will be pleased to hand the baton and stewardship of St Patrick’s College to Mr Crowley next year upon his retirement.

Mr Crowley’s leadership at Marian College has resulted in a dramatic improvement in its academic achievements. The College has undergone an exciting building programme over the five years of Mr Crowley's tenure, including the construction of a Gymnasium and Multi-Purpose Centre, a Trade Training Centre and the acquisition of adjacent land.

Mr Crowley has been innovative in his direction for Marian College in areas such as technology, curriculum planning and student motivation and engagement.

Over his twenty years of teaching experience, Mr Crowley has been rewarded for his enthusiastic dedication to teaching, especially in music. In 1998 he received a State National Excellence in Teaching Award and in the same year went on to receive the coveted National Excellence in Teaching Award from NEiTA Foundation for Australia.

Mr Crowley has degrees in Arts at Bachelor and Masters levels, a graduate diploma in Education and is currently completing his PhD in Education at Monash University. He is a member of the Australian College of Educators.  

Mr Crowley is familiar with the Edmund Rice tradition through his work at St Bernard’s College, Essendon, and Trinity College, Colac. He is an active member of the Ballarat Community where he lives with his wife and two daughters in St Columba’s parish.

Mr Crowley will commence as Headmaster of St Patrick’s College in 2015.
