Richard Clark

B.Soc.Sc. (Hons), PGCE Sec Teaching

Head of Secondary

Meet Mr Richard Clark. As Head of Secondary, he oversees the student care program to ensure that all students feel safe, respected, and cared for. This is achieved through oversight of the four major strands of Student Care:

  • Programs: explicitly taught programs to develop values and skills
  • Behaviour: promotion of positive behaviour responses across the Campus
  • Enrichment: opportunities to develop celebration and fun
  • Compliance: management of Student protection issues

Richard started at The Springfield Anglican College in 2009 and is passionate about promoting holistic education. He firmly believes that all students have enormous potential and that our job as educators is to create an environment where students feel valued for what they bring to their community. Each student should leave formal education understanding how they can contribute and what they can offer the wider world.

His favourite quote is, “People don’t need to know how to make their lives meaningful, they need to know that they already are”.
