Penny Vos

Penelope Vos was Deputy Principal of The Foothills School in Perth in 1995. The independent secondary school's review of their Languages Other Than English programs involved clarifiying purpose, identifying all alternatives, thorough comparison of the costs and benefits of each strategy conceived and and purposeful implementation of the plan. The review concluded that the school should teach Esperanto and that the deputy should both learn and teach it. She remained as Head of LOTE at the Foothills School and then at Treetops Montessori School in Perth for many years and is now Director of Education of the The Australian Esperanto Association Inc.
