Our Staff - Leadership Team

 

Principal - Mr Adrian Bosker

Adrian was appointed as Principal at Launceston Christian School in 2016.  His family have had a long association with LCS, including serving as a Board member and as active parents while their four children attended the school.  From a background in the printing industry, Adrian was a late entry into the field of formal education.  Adrian has spent the previous ten years as the Principal of Calvin Christian Primary School.  He is passionate about building relationships with parents and students of the school community and deeply values the partnerships that work toward mutual edification of our faith in Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord.  Adrian and his wife Lucy attend the Riverbank Christian Church.  They have nine grandchildren, four of which are already attending LCS.

 

 

Head of Junior School - Mr Kelvin Todd

Kelvin has been Head of Junior School since 2007 and believes it's a priviledge to see the way God grows and develops young enquiring minds. He values encouraging student wellbeing and relationships while focussing on academic development in the core areas of literacy and numeracy.  A huge fan of AFL (Carlton), Kelvin currently team teaches a year 5 class while balancing his leadership duties.

 

 

 

Head of Middle School - Mr Richard Sansom

 Richard joined our school at the beginning of 2017.  He believes that every student’s potential can be realised when academic achievement is positively balanced with social, emotional and spiritual growth. A native Tasmanian, Richard returned to Launceston after serving for ten years as Principal of Hinterland Christian College in Mullumbimby, New South Wales.  Richard is married to Kim, has four children and attends Freelife Church.

 

 

 

Head of Senior School - Mrs Michelle Fitzallen

Michelle really enjoys working with our Senior students and loves to see them well-prepared for life outside of school.  For Michelle the joy of relating with young people is the incentive for her to serve at LCS. Michelle was a former Home Economics teacher here at the school and still has a real passion for cooking, growing her own fruit and vegetables and working with fibres. Michelle has a deep commitment to serve Christ and believes that the team of staff working with the Senior students are people who aim to bring the power of Christ into every school situation.
