Last month, Toowoomba’s Christian Outreach College proudly announced their own Mr Michael Bray as the new College Principal.

Michael Bray has been a respected member of the COCT community and has previously held the positions of teacher, Head of Science and Maths, Director of Studies and Deputy Head of Secondary over the last 10 years.

Mr Bray began his teaching career at Nambour Christian College. He spent five years there, before holding various teaching positions in London, UK.

Mr Bray recently received a scholarship for the development of principals by Independent Schools Queensland, and was awarded Golden Key Society membership for academic excellence in 2010 by the University of New England.

Christian Outreach Church Toowoomba Lead Pastor Ken Wootton, who was part of the interviewing panel, said Michael was the right choice for this new season at COCT.

“Michael has been called for this position, at the right place, at the right time, and with the right development,” Mr Wootton said.

“I believe that Michael’s values, vision and passion will ensure that COCT continues to build on its reputation as one the region’s leading Christian Schools.”

“He has shown exemplary character in this College over the years, and every task he’s done has always exceeded expectations.”

Michael said he was excited to be leading such a passionate team as they continue to work toward unity, growth and excellence.

“One of the key things I want to see is that we celebrate what we’re doing well and then build on those successes,” said Michael.

“We have great students, great staff, great families and as we all work together, we will see exceptional outcomes. I want us to be a lighthouse, to be a place that inspires and motivates those around us.

“We’re striving to see the development of Christian character in our students. We’re equipping students for life academically, socially, physically and above all, spiritually,” Mr Bray said.
