Introducing James Lister
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Director of Learning and Curriculum for Years 3-6. I am extremely excited to join the PCS family and I am looking forward to working with the wonderful students and families within this brilliant Christ centred community.
I have been teaching for 17 years having recently left Pymble Ladies’ College and prior to that, I was teaching at St Aloysius’ College in Milsons Point. I am an experienced and enthusiastic leader with a demonstrated history in the primary education sector. I hold a Masters in Educational Leadership and strongly believe in being a lifelong learner. As a passionate educator, I have a strong focus on building resilient and responsible learners that are confident and creative in their approach to learning.
My wish is for the students of PCS to be curious, bold in the way they question, and relentless in finding answers and reaching their individual goals. I am committed to giving our students the tools they need in order to understand their own value and be an active member of our global community. My wife, Karen, and our two boys, Henry and Jonothon, are all sports enthusiasts who love exploring the outdoors and the amazing environments that God has created for us.
I look forward to working with all the staff, parents, students and wider community of PCS to continue to build excellence in education.
