Introducing our new Associate Principal, Middle School

John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Jordan Smith as Associate Principal, Middle School.  Jordan will take up this position in leading the Middle School at the commencement of the 2019 academic year.

Jordan has executive level experience having served as Head of Middle School at Serpentine Jarrahdale Grammar School (September 2012 – March 2016) and most recently as the Head of the Secondary School at Ellenbrook Christian College (April 2016 – Present).

At both Serpentine Jarrahdale Grammar School and Ellenbrook Christian College, Jordan had oversight of pastoral and curriculum matters and is passionate about the individual development of each child.  He has a clear vision that education must be about personal growth and wellbeing at all levels, with each individual given the opportunity to specialise in those areas where their talents and interests lie.

We believe that through his own words, actions and achievements, Jordan will be a role model for our students.  Jordan holds a Master of Education Degree, specialising in Leadership and Management.  As a teacher, Jordan has taught Health and Physical Education, Outdoor Education and Mathematics.

Mrs Julie Biggins, currently acting as the Assistant Principal, Middle School, completes her final term in this position at the end of 2018.  Julie is looking forward to working with Jordan in her new role as the Director of Teaching and Learning, Middle School.

The members of the selection panel decided upon Jordan’s candidacy from a wide range of applicants because of his outstanding leadership skills and his capacity to act as a role model for our students and staff.  He has a wide range of educational experiences and a clear vision for the future of Middle School education.

An accomplished footballer, Jordan has previously played for the South Fremantle Football Club in the WAFL competition and represented Western Australia.  He has completed numerous marathons including an Ironman triathlon, is a keen cyclist and a passionate West Coast Eagles supporter.  Jordan is married to Anna.

The JSRACS Community looks forward to welcoming Jordan, as well as and supporting his leadership and development of the Middle School, from 2019 and beyond.

Yours sincerely

Jason Bartell
