Since 1980, David Anderson has devoted himself to educating boys in a single-sex environment at Shore School (Australia). A geography teacher, Anderson served as Senior Boarding Housemaster and Boarding Housemaster for 25 years, and on the School Executive for 15 years.
In 1995, he led his first IBSC Annual Conference workshop, continuing to present workshops at 17 more conferences! Anderson hosted the 10th Coalition Annual Conference at Shore School in 2003 and served on the IBSC Board of Trustees 2003-13, including three years as Vice President Australasia.
Anderson has promoted boys' education across Australia and globally. He has conducted four IBSC Regional Conferences at Shore School, introduced many international guest speakers to member schools throughout Australia and New Zealand, and boosted IBSC membership.
He strongly believes in the broad experiences boys can gain in a single-sex environment in and out of the classroom. Anderson has actively engaged in rugby, cricket, and rowing. For boys to enjoy the classroom, he believes teachers must prepare well, enjoy a sense of humor, and positively recognize individual boys.
Anderson thanks his wife Gail and their three sons Adam, Matthew, and James for their constant, unwavering support throughout his rich career.
