Responsible for the oversight and management of the five TAS boarding houses, the Director of Boarding provides an additional layer of support for Heads of House, parents and students, and is a member of the School Executive team.
Promoting a climate where staff and students share mutual respect, care, trust and concern; providing and managing the necessary expectations in terms of student behaviour, creating opportunities for boarders to develop personal responsibility and facilitating appropriate social, cultural and other activities both within and outside the school, are all areas of focus of the Director of Boarding, Mr Michael Holland.
Mr Holland brings to TAS more than 20 years of boarding experience across five schools (both single sex and co-educational).
In addition to a deep understanding of boarding life, he has a love of teaching English and History and a passion for coaching rugby. He lives on campus with his wife Julianne (a Registered Nurse) and daughter Lucy, who attends TAS Junior School.
