With extensive leadership experience in girls’ schools, Mrs Trish Hatzis joins Ruyton as the Director of Wellbeing; a new role focusing on the wellbeing of all Ruyton community members.
Trish has completed a Bachelor Arts (Monash) and a Masters in Educational Leadership (ACU). More recently she has undertaken further studies in Positive Education (MGSE). It is through these latter studies that she has deepened her commitment to nurturing girls in a manner that develops in them a positive mindset, a sense of purpose in life and a readiness to connect with others. She sees this approach to wellbeing practices as an integral component in empowering each girl to reach her full potential, to lead with confidence and to go out and make a difference in the world.
Trish’s role at Ruyton also involves supporting staff to achieve and maintain optimal personal and professional wellbeing. It is through this that they will be best placed to support their own lifelong learning, as well as the learning and developmental needs of the students in their care.
