About Us

David Lindsay.

David worked as a structural consulting engineer for 10 years prior to commencing teaching mathematics at St Paul’s Grammar School Penrith. He has taught all levels of mathematics in NSW and the International Baccalaureate Diploma program. Following roles as a house master and year coordinator and 5 years representing staff at school board meetings he was appointed as Head of Senior School, an executive position he held for 10 years. He has been closely involved in building projects and development of the school property.

David has learned to appreciate education of the whole person as being more important than pure academic learning. Learning through service gives depth to the academic experience. The future of our students, our society and our world depends on how we serve each other. It has been wonderful to work together with students to grow this understanding. Education makes a difference in this world.

Four students in my IB English class stood up and presented on the trip, in the context of “postcolonial literature and postcolonial experience.” They were obviously inspired and motivated to great human goals, and energised to educate us as a group about the third world and our responsibilities towards it…..It was truly one of those lessons where the teacher becomes the student, and I realised that with rich experience comes true authority to teach.
