LAKE Joondalup Baptist College (LJBC) held a special assembly to farewell principal Dawn Clements this month.

Mrs Clements has been the principal since 2012 and leaves to take up the top job at Melbourne’s Presbyterian Ladies College.

Board of directors chairman Stephen Nosworthy said the school had gone from “strength to strength” under her leadership and was an “educational flagship in the northern corridor”.

He highlighted improvements to the school including the upper primary classrooms and sports centre as her achievements.

Daryl Pollard, from Portside Christian College in Adelaide, will join the school as principal from May 1, and Penny Houghton, who joined LJBC in 2000, will be acting principal for term one.
