Director of Student Wellbeing

Mr Tom van Gend

Mr van Gend is an experienced educator, having worked previously at St. Staislaud’s College Bathurst, La Salle Academy and Oakhill College. He has been at The Scots School since 2014. Besides his love for teaching science to students, Mr van Gend has had active roles as Science Coordinator, Director of Teaching and Learning and Pastoral Care Co-ordinator. He is presently Director of Student Welfare at The Scots School.

Mr van Gend is married with two teenage sons. He enjoys travelling when the opportunity arises, along with reading Science Fiction. Mr van Gend’s new role will combine the capacity for caring for children currently demonstrated by the teaching staff at both schools with the science and learnings of positive psychology to provide an enhanced pastoral care experience in order to nurture the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of each individual student.

The integration provides an opportunity to build an exceptional educational community in the Central West region. Mr van Gend is excited to be part of the leadership team charged with turning this aspiration into a reality.
