What is your favourite aspect of your role?
Having the interaction across a broad range of the activities within the school (ICT Infrastructure, physical building infrastructure and new capital works projects). Being able to watch the students (and staff) enjoy our amazing facilities is extremely satisfying.

From an IT perspective, being up to date with the new privacy laws, working with our partners to enforce adequate security systems to help prevent a breach.
