It is with great excitement that we announce the appointment of Ms Kate Fogarty to the role of Executive Director of Catholic Education Sandhurst commencing January 2024.
The current Principal of Assumption College Kilmore will be well known to many in the Diocese of Sandhurst, having previously served as Principal of St Joseph’s College Echuca (2009 - 2014) and Director of Catholic Identity at Catholic College Bendigo (now Catherine McAuley College) from 2006–2008.
Kate’s educational background, personal capabilities, experience, and expertise ensure that she is well placed to lead Catholic education in the Diocese of Sandhurst into the future.
Kate will take over the reins from Mr Paul Desmond, who will retire at the end of 2023 after nine years at the helm. During his time as Executive Director, Paul has led the Catholic Education Sandhurst community with humility, foresight and courage. His legacy, among many other aspects, will be his leadership during the incorporation of CES Ltd.
We look forward to welcoming Kate back to Sandhurst and to acknowledging and thanking Paul Desmond for his leadership and vision later in the year.
