We are delighted to announce that Dr Matthew Bach, former history teacher at the College, has won a seat in the Victorian Parliament as a member of the Liberal Party.
"I was thrilled to recently be elected to Parliament, following a career in education," Dr Bach told the OB Office, "my wife Amy and I remember our time in Brighton so fondly. Personally, I learnt so much about the core ingredients of a great education."
Dr Bach, who was formerly Deputy Principal and Head of Senior School at Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar school, had previous experience campaigning in the UK before moving back to Australia. He remains passionate about educational reform, and is an enthusiast for environmental change and sustainability in his community.
We wish him the best of luck in his new position!
