Former Deniliquin teacher Carly Doyle has been appointed principal of Wakool Burraboi Public School (WBPS).

Miss Doyle was relieving principal at the school last year, and later applied for the full time role.

‘‘It’s important for me to acknowledge what a privilege it is to be a teacher, and to be a leader of a school is an even greater privilege,’’ she said.

‘‘I’ve been extremely fortunate to have worked with some amazing local teachers and principals who have been fantastic role models ... they have encouraged and supported me to further my teaching career.’’

Miss Doyle completed her Bachelor of Education degree in 2005 through Charles Sturt University Wagga Wagga.

Since then, she has taught both primary and secondary students in Deniliquin and Darwin respectively, working across a number of age groups.

WBPS hosts about 30 students each year and is renowned for innovative programs.

A new feature is also the school’s own smart phone application.

Miss Doyle says her staff are ‘‘committed to offering a curriculum and learning experience which is highly personalised and relevant to individual children’’.

‘‘As principal I will continue to build upon the positive school climate with relevant stakeholders to provide quality educational opportunities for all students,’’ said Miss Doyle, who was influenced to become a teacher through her own experiences during her education.

‘‘Growing up I was fortunate to encounter a number of inspiring teachers who had a very positive impact on my life.

‘‘Teaching is helping first the mind, but also the heart ... the respect we show to each other in the classroom has an impact on a student’s view of themselves, on their other relationships and on their future.’’

Students return to the classroom tomorrow.
