Principal named Mosman Citizen of the Year 2015

27 January 2015

Principal of Mosman High School Susan Wyatt has been named Mosman Citizen of the Year 2015.

Mrs Wyatt was the unanimous recommendation of the Mosman Citizen selection committee, which included Cr Libby Moline, General Manager Veronica Lee, and the Presidents of the Rotary and Lions Clubs Mark Alderson and Peter Alderson.

Mosman Mayor Cr Peter Abelson acknowledged that under her 10-year leadership, the school had further developed its reputation for excellence across traditional and contemporary student areas and a wide range of arts and extracurricular activities.

“Susan works tirelessly, serves on many committees within the school, encourages parent committees and involvement and is involved in several Department of Education committees which formulate policy,” Cr Abelson said.

“The Mosman community is truly fortunate to have such an empathetic and dedicated principal of our largest high school.

“It was my privilege as then Mayor in 1984 to announce that the then retiring principal of the school, Merv Eyles, was citizen of the year, and it is a pleasure to see the current principal receive the same honour 31 years later.”

Mosman High School enrolments have risen from about 750 to more than 1,000 students with a waiting list of students wishing to attend.

Students are encouraged to have a community and global outlook, with many opportunities for international student exchange, including with the Mosman Rotary Club’s youth programs, and international musical programs.
