Dene Bright – School Principal
Prior to choosing to join Reach British School, I spent over 30 years working in education in a variety of locations and positions. These include primary classroom teacher, Education Advisor, Leadership Consultant, Principal and Vice Principal in both rural and metropolitan schools. I have had the opportunity to work in Abu Dhabi, as well as Egypt, Africa, Qatar, Fiji, Canada, Saudi Arabia and schools across Western Australia.
My most recent position was head of a British School in Cairo, a fantastic school with wonderful staff and vibrant, fascinating city. Reach British School lured me away with the prospect of returning to Abu Dhabi where I previously worked as part of an ADEC school reform project.
I have a son and a daughter who keep me young and focused on what today’s students need for the future workforce. I’ll have to work hard to find time to add to my list of 56 countries visited and to reduce my golf handicap on the wonderful golf courses here in Abu Dhabi!
