Fiona Foxon

Hello BMS Community.

My name is Fiona Foxon and I have had the pleasure of watching our two children learn and deeply grow through their time in Children’s House.

We were very fortunate to be introduced to Brisbane Montessori School by an extended family member whose curious, independent, and kind children seemed to us like very clear “proof in the pudding” through the calibre of students and life-long learners that BMS helps produce. Learning more about the Montessori pedagogy, we quickly fell in love with the skills that we knew BMS would help our children develop: kindness, independence, accountability, and curiosity. Also, having just moved to Brisbane from Hong Kong with a very international upbringing as a family, we deeply valued the diverse and multicultural community represented across the BMS campus.

I feel very honoured and humbled to be a member of the BMS Board of Directors, co-opted in to complement the existing Director skillsets, bringing my over 15 years of experience in sales and marketing. I have worn many hats including Managing Director, VP of Sales and Marketing, Regional Brand Manager, Project Manager, and Founder. What ties it all together is my straightforward, ambitious, and community-centric approach to organisational growth, depth, efficiency, or scale – whatever the measurement for success might be. 

An ex-professional women’s rugby player, I am now much more sensible in my older age and enjoy cycling with our family, walks around the BMS campus along the Brisbane river, good food and wine, music with friends and family, and getting into nature as often as possible – not hard given this great Sunshine state that we live in!

Thank you for the opportunity to humbly serve our BMS community.
