Megan Bennett

My name is Megan Bennett and I’m excited to be returning to Wyrallah Road Public School this year. This is my third year working with the talented and hard-working staff at WRPS and I am on Stage 2 teaching Year 4.

I grew up in Lismore and moved to Brisbane to study at university. After graduating in 1992 with a Bachelor of Engineering in Environmental Engineering, I worked for over 20 years in various locations around Australia protecting and/or rehabilitating the environment from the impact of industries such as coal mining, road construction, ski resorts and remote island tourism.

While living and working as a Ranger on Lord Howe Island, I started volunteering at my children’s school and it was during this time that I came to the realisation that I felt very comfortable in the school environment. I studied teaching by distance and graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Teaching (Primary).

I am passionate about environmental sustainability and have strong skills and a love for the sciences, geography and mathematics. I have high expectations of my students and aim to help them succeed through establishing a strong relationship with them and their family and providing engaging learning experiences.

I have three children (two at high school and one in primary) and love to read, listen to music, go hiking and camping, ride mountain bikes, create gardens and travel. I also sing in a local community choir and paddle with the Rainbow Dragons!
