Rowena McLaughlin

My name is Rowena McLaughlin and I am the Deputy Principal at Wyrallah Road Public School. I completed my Bachelor of Education at Southern Cross University and began my teaching career at Kyogle Public School. After 9 years as a classroom teacher and assistant principal I was lucky enough to gain the position of Assistant Principal at Wyrallah Road Public School in 2013. In 2016 I was appointed as the Deputy Principal. I currently work 4 days a week, returning from maternity leave last year after the birth of my son. 

I currently lead the curriculum development team, the Aboriginal Education Team and the also run the dance program for Stages 2 & 3. I also lead many other programs across the school all of which focus on improving student learning outcomes. 

I enjoy travelling and spending time outdoors, especially at the beach. I have a passion for dance and I love being able to share this passion and my skills with the students at WRPS. 

I am committed to the teaching profession and have a strong desire for quality outcomes for all students. I am committed to providing students with a supportive environment in which they can thrive academically, socially and physically. I strive to instil a love of learning in all students and to make learning exciting and interesting. I have built strong working relationships with parents, students, staff and the wider school community. This year I am looking forward to another fantastic year working with the WRPS school community.
