“…Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine…” nduction Service: Dr Colleen Vassiliou Last night we celebrated the induction of Dr Colleen Vassiliou as our new College Head. Dr Vassiliou, who is a Kingswood parent, brings a wealth of ability, personal achievement and experience to the school. At High School level she was, inter alia, Head Girl of her school, attained Academic Honours and was named Matriculant of the Year. She was a member of her school’s first tennis team and played hockey for the Free State U19 A team. Dr Vassiliou started her professional career as a High School Mathematics teacher and subsequently worked in a number of important leadership positions. She obtained a PhD in Counselling Psychology and immediately prior to joining the Kingswood staff, she was Director of Student Affairs at Rhodes University. Dr Vassiliou decided to return to the school environment and joined Kingswood College in 2016, heading up the Human and Organisational Development portfolio in the school. She has a keen interest in positive psychology and wellness. She went on to draft the Kingswood 2018-2020 Strategic Plan and fulfilled the role of Operational Head in 2018. We are indeed fortunate in having been able to engage a person of the stature of Dr Vassiliou to fill the role of College Head and to take over the management of the College in its Jubilee year. Kingswood pupils and staff have already embraced our new Head and she is fondly referred to as “Dr V”.
