Meeting Members of Staff…

Mr S Matheson.

This term we welcome Mr Matheson, who joins our Science Department as Head of Chemistry and will be teaching this subject in the Seniors up to and including A Level.  Originally from Australia, Mr Matheson obtained his B.Sc. with Honours from the University of Queensland and also achieved a B.Ed.

Before teaching, Mr Matheson enjoyed a time making yachts and adhesives but then turned to education and taught in Brisbane Grammar School for Boys.  It was while teaching in Malaysia that he gained his M.Ed.

Since January this year Mr Matheson and his family have been in England and he joins us not only as a teacher, but also as an Augustinian parent!

He says, ‘I am looking forward to the opportunity to extend the studies of the pupils here  – they are well-trained in the love of learning’.

We know that Mr Matheson will enjoy teaching  – and his children will enjoy learning – at St Augustine’s Priory.
