Former Principal, Mr Don Ingham has passed away

With deep regret and remorse we would like to mention that our previous Principal, Mr Don Ingham, has recently passed away.


It is a huge shock and trauma for the entire College faculty as the news of this ‘Great Man’s’ departure has left us in tatters. We can never forget his unprecedented support and dedication to our institute. His valuable contribution, expertise and skill to our College were unmatched and played a monumental role in our development and growth. He was a man of great charisma, integrity and principles, who had no hesitation in moulding himself into any form or type to assist the College at all times.

It is a massive loss to the College and to his family and friends and we would like to extend our condolences and full support to his family and hope for their peace and patience in this predicament.

He would be deeply missed and always be remembered by the College and by those who had the privilege of knowing him personally and professionally.

May his soul rest in peace.
