Welcome, Krishna Stanton
The inspirational Krishna Stanton took up the role as Principal of Raymont Residential College in July 2023.
Krishna’s journey so far has taken her to the highest levels in sport, including winning a silver medal in the women’s marathon at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. She has had a teaching career spanning 25 years and most recently has spent six years in leadership in university residential colleges.
She plans to use all facets of her experience in these different sectors to lead Raymont as a live-in Principal.
“I am filled with excitement at being given the opportunity to work with an amazing team to help young people navigate the challenges of tertiary education while living away from home.”
Krishna is especially eager to regularly engage with the students, making sure every student knows they matter and can be themselves.
“My goal is to make the students who reside with us feel as though they have a home away from home; to be inclusive of everyone in a unique co-educational adult environment. I want Raymont to be somewhere they feel supported as young adults, both academically and personally.”
Moving away from home, studying at university, meeting new people and navigating life as a young adult can be daunting.
The Raymont team is available to help all students troubleshoot concerns or issues they may be having and support them in the transition.
As a ‘dry’ college (alcohol free), Raymont has become a very safe and nurturing environment for students to grow and develop so that they can focus on their studies and become well-rounded young adults.
Krishna’s philosophy is that sport is a metaphor for life; “you get out of it what you put into it!” We couldn’t agree more!
