I have been the Centre Director at SDN Hamilton Street, Bathurst for the past four years.
My husband and I moved to Bathurst from Sydney in 1986 and I began working at the centre as a casual soon after. In the following years my three children all attended Hamilton Street, and once they were all at school I changed to become a permanent part-time employee, and I eventually took up a full time position.
The strong link that Hamilton Street has with the community is one of the reasons I love coming to work each day. Often grandparents come to collect their grandchildren and they relay stories of when their children attended the centre. Our recent renovations and our beautiful outdoor environment ensure that both children and staff now have an inviting space to educate, explore and discover the world around them.
I am very fortunate to lead a dynamic team of educators who truly believe in SDN’s values and philosophy and use these to guide their educational practice.
