Mr John Russell
John has been the principal of Doxa School Bendigo since it opened its doors in 2006. John has taught in Catholic schools in regional Victoria since 1985 and in Bendigo since 1990. He has spent much of his teaching life serving in student management and leadership positions and has always had an affinity with the vulnerable and troubled in his school communities. John's progression to the leadership of the Doxa School community is one that has provided some of his greatest challenges but also the greatest rewards he has experienced in his journey through education. He has a passion for his role at Doxa School and for working with his students.
