Cheryl works at Evans River Community School in Evans Head on the NSW Far North Coast.
“I have worked in schools for almost 28 years, and have been a PSA member for 25 of them,” she said. “I have been the School Administrative Manager at Evans River for 13 years.
“I directly supervise seven of the School Administrative Officers who make up our office team.
“My team are the front line of the school and we realise great first impressions are enormously important.”
Evans River is a Kindergarten-to-Year 12 school, with an enrolment of around 530 students, and a recent turbulent history.
“Our area was decimated by the floods in early 2022 and the school was closed for a period of time whilst it operated as an evacuation centre,” said Cheryl. “Many of our students and some of our staff lost their homes and all their possessions in the floods and their recovery from this enormous trauma has been steadily progressing over the past 18 months.”
