Mr Jason Burgess
Assistanat Principal/Director Junior Schools
Jason has a love for learning and a passion to see students work hard and aim to excel in all that they do. He has been teaching for 25 years and previously taught at Heatherton Christian College for 10 years where he was the Deputy Principal/Head of Primary. Prior to that he taught at Mentone Grammar and before that in London, England. Jason has also held a number of leadership roles in different schools and has taught classes from Prep-Year 10. Having taught in Independent, Government and Christian schools, he is of the firm belief that educating children in a Christian school is the best option. Jason is committed to holding staff and students accountable and to having high expectations of each student, knowing that when they are supported and challenged and with God’s help they can achieve more than they ever thought they would. He has seen children achieve outstanding results in different schools that he has worked in. Here at Maranatha, Jason wants to encourage a rigorous academic culture infused with the grace of God in all that we do.
