Faces of Clonard

Mr Dean Williams
Mr Williams’ journey at Clonard began 23 years ago when Chanel College closed and all shared classes across the two Colleges ceased. Mr Williams was employed to fill the position of Visual Communication and design teacher and has taught this across all year levels since.

During this time, Mr Williams has also held numerous leadership positions, including Arts Co-ordinator, Assessment and Reporting, Staff Support and Professional Learning, and over the last 12 years as Assistant Principal – College Organisation. With a new leadership model being implemented in 2022, Mr Williams has recently reapplied and has been successful in fulfilling a new position of Assistant Principal – Community and Culture. This position is a dynamic role contributing to the continuous improvement of the College through faith leadership, our school improvement priorities, leading improvement, innovation and change, learning, teaching and wellbeing and engaging with our communities.

Mr Williams’ genuine love and enthusiasm for Clonard is shared with his three daughters, Maggie who is in her 3rd year of a science degree and Alice and Lucy, Year 11 and 12 respectively. Mr Williams feels very fortunate to have had his daughters grow up around Clonard, visiting after school hours or on weekends and attending as students. Just like their father, this has contributed to their strong infinity and a shared passion for Clonard which is evident in everything they have done here at Clonard. Thank you Mr Williams for your years of service, leadership, approachable manner and creativity as witnessed through the Arts, we wish you all the best in your new role.
