wab-assistant-principalsWestern Academy of Beijing (WAB) is pleased to introduce its new Assistant Principals to the Beijing community.

Murray Polglase, Marina Frias and Justine Smyth are settled in to their roles and to the fall semester, having helped WAB to smoothly navigate one of its busiest and most successful school openings to date.

Murray Polglase comes from Australia, and has been teaching at WAB for the past four years. He brings over 20 years of teaching experience to his new role as High School Assistant Principal (AP), including time as a Head of Department and Grade Level Leader. Murray is convinced that WAB is truly a unique school that has the best interests of its students at heart. He is looking forward to the challenges, and certainly successes, in the years to come. Murray has a son who is a teacher in Tianjin, and a daughter who studies at WAB.

Marina Frias hails from Venezuela, and is in her seventh year at WAB, having previously taught at international schools in Venezuela, the Philippines, the Sultanate of Oman, Thailand and China. She brings degrees in special needs and counseling, along with post-graduate training in ESOL and enrichment to her new role as WAB middle school AP. Adding to her impressive educational background, Marina is currently working on a Master’s degree in educational leadership. She has three children, two of whom are of school age and study at WAB.

Justine Smyth has over 20 years of kindergarten through grade 6 teaching experience in her home country of Australia and internationals schools throughout Asia. With her experience in education, having been an IBO representative for leading workshops, accrediting schools and consulting schools on educational matters, and with three years’ experience at WAB, Justine has made a natural progression to her new post as WAB elementary school AP. She strongly believes that by placing and keeping students at the center of all we do we can truly begin to explore pedagogy, practices and structures that put student needs first. Justine’s two children attend WAB.
