Meet the Head of College

From the Chair of Council

Duchesne College would like to welcome Mrs Vanessa Cassard who will be acting in the Head of College role while the recruitment process for the Head of College takes place. Many of you will remember Vanessa from her time at Duchesne College as Acting Deputy Head in the first half of the year.

Vanessa is a highly organized, adaptable, strategic professional with proven extensive experience in pastoral and residential care. With strong Christian values demonstrated over an established successful career, she has led teams to deliver exceptional outcomes. She resides in St Lucia with her husband and two children who attend the University of Queensland.

Over this transition period, Vanessa, working closely with Council, will continue to lead Duchesne College in alignment with the Sacred Heart ethos.
