Farewell to a valued member of the Mercedes College team

At the end of Term 4, Mercedes College will farewell much-loved Deputy Principal, Paul Wadsworth.

It is with great appreciation for his commitment to Mercedes College, our lived values and education, that we congratulate Paul on his appointment from 2023 leading learning and working closely with Directors of Learning and Learning Leaders as Deputy Principal at St Francis de Sales, Mount Barker.

Paul is an exemplary educator and leader who has been with Mercedes College for 17 years, having joined as Head of Middle School in 2006, and an outstanding Deputy Principal to two Principals since 2016, as well as Interim Principal in 2019.

Together with his wife Dimity, Paul is a proud Mercurean with both Jess and Jonathan graduating from Mercedes College who, like their peers, are inquisitive, engaged, and confident young people.

Building on his teaching and leadership roles with St Patrick's College, Rostrevor College and Mercedes College, in a career spanning more than 30 years, Paul’s experience across our Reception to Year 12 campus will be a strength as he joins a team of ELC to Year 12 educators in Mount Barker from January.

Renown for fostering leadership skills, and his restorative and compassionate work strategies, we say thank you to Paul for his dedication and professionalism at Mercedes College, knowing that he will take the Mercy and IB ethos with him to St Francis de Sales.
