The PMSA Board today announced the appointment of the 10th Headmaster for Brisbane Boys’ College (BBC), Mr Andre Casson. At the Annual General Meeting, PMSA Chair Morgan Parker shared the news with guests.
“A headmaster at BBC is more than the Head of a school, it is the leader of a community. Andre Casson possesses the perfect combination of personal sensibilities, professional acumen and global perspective to take BBC confidently into the future.
“Brisbane Boys’ College is one of Australia’s most prominent schools and having someone of Mr Casson’s experience and thought-leadership, will position it advantageously within the Brisbane GPS context.”
Andre is currently the Head of the Australian International School in Singapore, where he has overseen the strategic direction and growth of this incredibly high-performing institution. Responsible for the care of infants through to students completing year 12, the school adopts the Australian Curriculum as the basis for the primary years, with senior programs integrating with the NSW Higher School Certificate, or the International
Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
While Andre shared his passion for the new role “I feel an immense sense of pride. Brisbane Boys’ College is a school of magnificent tradition and an amazing history. For almost 120 years, the College has been producing gentlemen of honour, who have gone out to make a difference in the world. I feel so proud that I get to continue that legacy.”
Mr Casson graduated from the General Management Program, Harvard Business School, he has a Diploma in Education from The University of Notre Dame Australia and a Bachelor of Science, from The University of Western Australia. Mr Casson boasts previous experience in the Brisbane GPS school environment, being a ormer Deputy Head of Senior School at Churchie prior to relocating to Singapore.
