The Governing Body of The Berkeley Institute today [Feb 27] announced that Dr. Phyllis Curtis-Tweed is to resign from her post as Principal of The Berkeley Institute at the end of this academic year to “pursue another professional opportunity.”
Chairman of the school’s Board of Governors, Mr. Craig Bridgewater said, “On behalf of the entire Berkeley Family, the Board thanks Dr. Curtis-Tweed for her leadership of the school over the past three years as only the second woman to hold this position in a substantive capacity in the school’s long history. We certainly wish her well as she pursues other opportunities.”
Dr. Curtis Tweed said, “Have no doubt that I leave with mixed emotions, having enjoyed and benefitted from my time here as Principal but also believing that the new opportunity should be pursued.
“I have no doubt that good practices and programmes at the Berkeley Institute will be sustained and/or extended. Rest assured that I will support the school in the recruitment and hiring process and facilitate any transitional matters as needed.”
“While it will be business as usual for the remainder of the school year, the Board has moved immediately to appoint a Recruitment Committee that will engage in a recruitment process to ensure that a successor has been appointed, and is in place, in advance of the start of the new school year in September 2017,” the Board added.
