Reviews for School Principal in NSW Department of Education

Intense at times but worthwhile to see advancement of education for children.

The education of many children over many years in both primary and high school settings has been an experience that has made working for a large beaurocracy very worthwhile. Teaching literacy and numeracy to young children as well as teaching mathematics to high school students is a very satisfying profession but is also has been very intensive over a long period of time.


Further the education of children.


Long hours at home in preparation.
