The Board of Parkes Christian School has accepted the resignation of the Principal for the past seven years, Graham Hope.
According to a message from the board, Graham plans on remaining in the role for term two before taking leave for the re- mainder of the year and officially finishing at the end of 2017.
In the second half of the year Graham will be taking some study time, but will as- sist the board in the transition to the next Principal.
In Graham’s tenure as Principal, Parkes Christian School has made significant pro- gress and the school saw the introduction of Stage 6, including the completion of the first two years of HSC graduates and enrol- ments doubled.
“It would be remiss if we did not thank Graham’s wife Lynne, acknowledging the steadfast support of Graham but also a highly capable and diligent member of the school executive who has contributed significantly to many achievements during this period,” the board said in its message.
