Antonella Rosati joined the Siena College community in 2019 as Deputy Principal Wellbeing. She has a wealth of experience in the leadership, wellbeing and learning and teaching spheres and first and foremost prioritises the young people in her care. Throughout her time at Siena, Rosati has enjoyed building a strong foundation with the wellbeing team, college staff, parents and students. She has a passionate commitment to student wellbeing and learning and teaching and believes that they are inextricably linked to learning outcomes.
Of her work, Rosati says, “It is my strong belief that young people have the capacity to achieve their full potential when their wellbeing is nurtured in a faith-filled learning environment that is safe, inclusive and respectful. Setting high expectations for all and providing robust, challenging and engaging opportunities where students have flexibility is essential.
“Students must see that their learning will lead them to a future where success for all is possible and all pathways are equally valued and respected. Authentic engagement with student voice is also paramount to understanding our students and empowering them. It is not enough to give students a voice unless they are able to see how their voices are heard and used to inform change.”

How does he distinguish himself among fellow brokers?
“I believe all brokers are working very hard in a difficult market,” he says. “However, I have demonstrated continued growth, advocacy and performance on my client’s behalf, which is now recognised [for 10 consecutive years] in the Elite Broker awards.”
In 1990, Dixon got started with FAI, working in claims and as a team leader. From the late 1990s up until 2003, he worked at FAI and Suncorp in underwriting and as an area manager at VACC, CGU (South East Queensland). From 2003 to 2012, he got into broking and eventually started Dixon Insurance in 2013. Since then, he’s accumulated numerous acccolades, including Elite Broker, Diversity and Equity, and Fast Broker awards.
During the pandemic, Dixon challenged insurers over the Quarantine Act application to insurance wordings. His argument was that the Quarantine Act does not apply as an exclusion, as the Biosecurity Act was invoked by the Morrison Government, and this was not a subsequent amendment to the Quarantine Act. The test case in the Appeals court was won for Dixon’s client with a unanimous five-judge verdict.
He remains focused on transport, manufacturing, motor trade, engineering and large farm clients.
What are his plans for the future?
On a business level, “more of the same. I will continue to empower and encourage my staff to perform at their best as I have done for the last decade. I will continue to advocate for my clients, embracing new technology and being open to business and industry changes.”
On a personal level, Dixon invests significant time, effort and funds, along with his GT3, to support many charities through his passion for motorsport. From participating in and sponsoring the Thunderbolt Run (which provides tens of thousands of dollars in support for Beyond Blue and Prostate Cancer), to organising and running the Track Knights for Amira charity night where 28 Exotic Supercars raised funds through passenger laps in wet conditions, Dixon states “this is our time to give back to the community and those in need. My friendships and association with those seeking to do the same, allows us to contribute to those less fortunate and raise funds and awareness”.
He adds: “To be able to give back to the community is rewarding and fulfilling. I am honoured to be in a position where I can raise funds for those less fortunate and in need.”
