Q&A with Mat Disher, Director of Learning and Wellbeing ELC-12

1. Where were you before this and what persuaded you to join Concordia College?

I was at Scotch College Adelaide as the Head of Middle School. The Director of Learning and Wellbeing role persuaded me to join the College as Concordia is one of the first schools to put these two elements together, as they should be.

2. Three words to describe you.

Energetic, positive, fidgety.

3. What is your motivation or inspiration in your role?

We tell young people that school is supposed to be the best years of their life – I’m motivated to make sure that it is.

4. If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation. Imagine being able to teleport anywhere in the world to visit/explore, and even teleport to work – no more traffic!

5. Who would you invite to a dinner party of six guests and why? Alternatively, tell us something you might like to share that we could not possibly know?

The Essendon Football Club coaching staff (I have some thoughts I would like to share).
