FAREWELL TO THE CCP
(August, 2000, for 'The Lion' magazine)

The City Curriculum Project is proving to be a champion thoroughbred.  And what a lucky trainer I have been! 

Since July 1997, 670 young jockeys have been aboard the CCP, which was bred by Chris Poulton's 1996 Middle Years Project Team, along with his Heads of Faculty, and pre-trained by Judith Patterson and Andrew McAree. 

During its 260 'race days', the CCP has constantly carried its riders to rich success.  The students have been superb!  Relishing the freedom, independence and trust granted them, they have judged the pace well, kept excellent balance and eagerly taken every opening with remarkable aplomb.

Monash University, particularly Rob Willis's School of Business Systems and the Monash Conference Centre, has been a wonderful supporter of the CCP as have Campus Principal, Jenny Wajsenberg and  former Campus Head, Helen Drennen, Middle School leaders, Andrew Sloane, John Swanland and David McKenna and Chaplain Ian Higgins. 

Thanking them, I thank, also, the Glen Waverley Campus teachers for their hearty support during the last three and a half years. 

Finally, I thank all parents who placed their faith in Wesley, the CCP, their students and me. I hope you have been rewarded too.
