After an incredible forty-four year career in education, Di Peachey, Differentiated Pedagogies Middle Leader, retired today.
Whilst commencing her career in schools in NSW in 1977, and having worked for Brisbane Catholic Education since 1997, initially on contract in schools, but then from 1999 as an Education Officer, Mrs Peachey joined our Mary MacKillop College community in 2018 as Differentiated Pedagogies Middle Leader.
During her years of service, Mrs Peachey has made a significant contribution to promoting indigenous and inclusive education and supporting numerous students, families and staff members to ensure quality learning opportunities for all are prioritised.
Our College community paid tribute to her at a very special 'This is Your Life' Assembly to honour her service to MMC but more importantly her life-long commitment to education and to our profession.
Not only has Mrs Peachey has worked diligently during her time at our College, she has ensured a smooth transition for our new Differentiated Pedagogies Middle Leader, Juan Bessinger, from St Patrick's College, Shorncliffe. He brings to our College community a great deal of experience, quality practices and processes, and a depth of knowledge as he joins our fabulous academic staff and dedicated school officers to empower our MacKillop Women to be people of purpose achieving their potential.
We wish Mrs Peachey all the best for her much deserved retirement as she and her husband embark on a great adventure in their newly acquired caravan as they enjoy their trip around Australia commencing on Mary MacKillop Feast Day, 8th August!
May St Joseph – Teach her
May St Mary of the Cross – Guide Her
And may Jesus Live in her Heart – Forever
