One month ago, I wrote this article about what was happening at Trinity Grammar in Melbourne.
An unpopular decision was made by the Kew private school to summarily sack their long-serving and extremely popular Deputy Principal. What happened next took the school by surprise. This excerpt from The Age on 11th April says it all.
“Mr Brown’s sacking last month thrust the Anglican school into an administrative crisis, with parents, students and alumni declaring they had no confidence in the school council or principal.”
Then came the consequences and the backdown.
“Facing intense criticism from the school community, three school council members, including the chair, stood down last month.”
“After weeks of unrest, the Kew private school offered deputy principal Rohan Brown his job back on Wednesday evening- an offer he swiftly accepted.”
Now It Is auDA’s Turn
Member unrest at auDA has resurfaced in a big way. This has culminated in a request for another SGM (Special General Meeting).
auDA responded to this in two ways.
- Firstly, there was this letter from their lawyers Ashurst.
- Then followed (late last night) this statement from the auDA Chair.
And it appears from reading LinkedIn this morning that certain people have been “leaked” confidential Board information.
All I can say is “WOW!”.
I read this great article on FIREBRAND yesterday by the very well credentialed Nicole Matejic. It is entitled:
- Do not spin the truth to suit you — that’s not truth, it’s manipulation: the very definition of propaganda.
- Don’t fight or flee the truth.
- Do not play the blame game.
I wonder who is advising auDA?
