Students and staff at Dunlea Centre, Australia’s Original Boys’ Town would like to express their thanks for the ongoing support received from the community across 2019.
Paul Mastronardi has been the Executive Director of Dunlea Centre since 2012. Prior to his appointment, he worked for the Catholic Education Commission in the Welfare Directorate.
Paul has had many years in education and counselling, being involved in various leadership roles across the sectors. Paul was initially trained as a teacher but quickly developed a keen interest in marginalised youth.
This growing curiosity and further study led to his registration as an Educational Psychologist. With a philosophy committed to lifelong learning, Paul is currently completing his MBA with a focus on leadership and management and is working towards submitting a PhD research proposal centred on Residential Care.

Her dedication to the organisation, and her demonstrated commitment to the mission, is evident through her years of service.
