Gareth Hockings

My name is Gareth Hockings and I am proud to be the Principal of the amazing Wyrallah Road Public School. After completing studies in both Environmental Science and Education I began my teaching career at La Perouse, a predominantly Aboriginal school in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. From there I moved to lead and teach at Croppa Creek, a small school near Moree. Since then I have gone on to work in schools all over New South Wales as well as teaching in Mongolia and South Korea.

Wyrallah RoadĀ is theĀ fourth school I have had the privilege of leading and I have been here since 2013. I am passionate about providing opportunities for children and creating an environment where all students feel welcomed, valued and safe.

I have travelled extensively and believe that spending time with other people and other cultures is a powerful learning experience. I love spending time with my wife and two daughters and together we are often found at the beach, bushwalking or camping. Other passions include reading, card games and cycling.
