A private school has appointed a principal designate, it was revealed yesterday.

Anna Faria-Machado joined Mount St Agnes Academy in September 1999 as a grade-six teacher and has taught at several levels at the school and was promoted to assistant principal designate in 2018.

She said: “We have a very exciting journey ahead of us as we build on the traditions of the past and lead the school into the future in innovative new ways.

“It is an honour to continue to work with the MSA family to help our students thrive and achieve their very best.”

Ms Faria-Machado, who will replace Sue Moench and take up the post next July, earlier taught at Elliot Primary School and the Gilbert Institute.

The Hamilton school has also appointed Kim Raymond as deputy principal and Christopher Tannock as assistant principal.

Ms Raymond joined MSA as a PE and health teacher in 2011.

She was promoted to assistant principal designate in 2018.

She started her teaching career at East End Primary as a PE and health teacher in 2003.

Ms Raymond said: “I am honoured to be part of the new administration team.

“I look forward to continuing the customs that make the MSA family unique, upholding the principals of Christian education and maintaining a safe nurturing environment for our students.”

Mr Tannock joined MSA in 2013 as a social studies teacher. He was promoted to assistant principal designate in 2019.

His career started at the Berkeley Institute as a social studies teacher and head of year.

He said: “I am looking forward to growth. Growth is important, to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. An ongoing project for this school year will be to produce tremendous opportunity to learn and grow.”

Ms Moench has agreed to remain as principal for an extra year to ensure a seamless transition for the new leadership team.
