When Sue Woollard came to Colonel Light Gardens Primary School in 2012, she became the School’s fifth Principal in three years. Since then, Sue has provided a much-needed period of stability and consolidation that has seen our School go from strength-to-strength, particularly in relation to its core business of providing quality education for our children. While Sue’s leadership has led to some wonderful improvements in the School’s physical environment, her greatest impact has perhaps been less visible – developing a consistent, rigorous and data-driven approach to teaching and learning across all year levels. From implementing an Inquiry approach to pedagogy throughout the School, to launching the BYOD Program in 2015 and increasing the focus on supporting each student to achieve his or her best, Sue’s contribution to Colonel Light Gardens will continue to benefit our students for many years to come.
It has been a pleasure to work with Sue over the past two years, and on behalf of the School Council I thank her for her dedication, professionalism and energy. We wish her all the very best as she embarks on the next phase of her life.
