John Finn, the first non-priest principal at Whitefriars College
Melbourne school Whitefriars Catholic College for Boys has appointed its first non-priest principal in the secondary school's 52-year history, reports the Herald Sun.
The Donvale school will be led by John Finn, who replaces Father Paul Cahill after 16 years of leadership.
"My absolute commitment is to make sure that every boy who comes in the gate is given the best opportunities," Mr Finn said.
Mr Finn, who lives in Armadale with his teacher-wife Mary, said he was keen to continue Whitefriars' strong tradition of putting words into actions.
"Catholic schools provide a sense of justice in what they try and do," he said.
