Mr. Michael Downey is the school’s ninth Headmaster and has been part of the Selwyn House community for over 30 years, as a science teacher, department head and most recently as the Assistant Headmaster and Head of Senior School. Mr. Downey is a big believer in the voice and choice of students and wholeheartedly supports student initiatives. He is a great listener and recently added the fourth pillar to our Veritas vision: Be true to your world.
“If we’ve only learned one thing from this pandemic, it’s that we are all in this together,” says Mr. Downey. “Everything that’s happening around the world is affecting everyone else. We need to be aware of that. So, it’s important that, as you go through life you always take care of one another. You always be kind and respectful to everybody at all times. This is very, very important, and I will insist on it.”
