Appointment of Head of Girls Boarding

It is with great delight that we announce the appointment of Mrs Chemane Fairleigh to the position of Head of Girls Boarding.

Mrs Fairleigh is currently the House Mistress to 60 girls at the Harrow International School, Hong Kong, where she is also actively involved in the teaching of Physical Education and is the Head of Netball. Mrs Fairleigh has demonstrated through all of the positions she has held in her career a commitment to the holistic education of all the students in her care whilst priding herself on knowing each student on a personal and academic level.

Mrs Fairleigh’s extensive educational experience includes:

  • House Mistress and HPE Teacher – Harrow International School, Hong Kong
  • Head of Year – The South Island School, Hong Kong
  • Head of House and HPE Teacher – St. Helen’s School, Middlesex
  • She has also worked in youth justice and youth social work roles within Australia

Extensively qualified through experience, Mrs Fairleigh also holds a number of formal qualifications including a Bachelor of Arts with Qualified Teacher Status in Secondary Education: Physical Education and Life Science, as well as a Masters Degree in Social Work and a Professional Diploma in Mid-Level Leadership in International Schools.

Mrs Fairleigh will be joined by her husband, Jason (a New South Welshman for those of a Blue persuasion). Their family, including three children (Sam, 7, Ashley and Ben, 3 ½) will join the College community in early January. They are excited to be joining such a strong community and being able to enjoy the space and outdoor nature that Warwick offers to all those who live within our community. Mrs Fairleigh’s family is looking forward to becoming part of the SCOTS PGC family, and I am sure you will join with me in welcoming her and her family into the SCOTS PGC fold.

Regards, Kyle Thompson

Principal
