CCGS Headmaster retires on high note
Central Coast Grammar School (CCGS) Headmaster, Bill Low will retire at the end of this year after an outstanding career in education spanning more than 50 years. His farewell dinner held at Crowne Plaza Terrigal at the end of November saw over 80 invited guests honour his commitment to the school for over 15 years.
Guests who came to honour his work at the school included: Mr Isao Hommi, former Principal and current board member of Ueda Nishi High School, Japan and Ms Masako Kato, Headmistress of Kanto Daiichi High School, Tokyo. Ms Kato represented Immediate Past Chairman Mr Yoshimura and the current Chairman Mr Shibuya who both sent messages of goodwill. Mr Hommi represented Ueda Nishi long-term Chairman Mr Mizuno and Principal Mr Sato.
Dr Bob Carbines (former Director NSW School Education Quality Assurance Unit and Deputy Director General Education Victoria) and Dr Geoff Newcombe AM (former CEO of Association of Independent Schools NSW) were also in attendance and paid tribute to Mr Low’s lifetime of achievement in education.
In his time as Headmaster, CCGS has become one of the most successful and respected independent schools in NSW.
Early in his tenure as Headmaster, Mr Low, along with the school Board, developed a long-term strategy to invest in quality teaching and learning for students. This strategy, along with an ambitious capital investment program, would see the school’s facilities become the envy of independent schools in NSW.
For the tenth consecutive year, CCGS has been ranked in the Top 100 NSW schools for HSC results.
