Boggabri Public School and Boggabri Sacred Heart school welcomed new teachers, families, and kindergarten students this week.

School captains, Sports captains and Student representative council members were announced, and students will receive their badges next week.

Boggabri Public School has three new teachers. Karla-lee Ward has made the move from Blue Haven Public School on the Central Coast.

Miss Ward is originally from Breeza and has been teaching for five and a half years.

“I’m passionate about improving students’ skills to allow them to be successful for whatever future they choose,” she said.

Lizzie Stove is a mother of two children and has been teaching for six years, four of those years have been at Narrabri.

“I have a passion for English and I’m also passionate about developing a love of learning in my students.”

Niki Leslie is the Learning and Support teacher at Boggabri Public this year.

Mrs Leslie grew up at Collarenebri and moved away when she was 14 and returned to the region 10 years ago with her husband and their four children and live on a farm near Edgeroi.

“I love yoga, being creative and going to the beach or bushwalking with my family, and my background is in ‘wellbeing’, so I am looking forward to bring some of those skills to my new role,” said Mrs Leslie.

Mrs Leslie has been teaching in Narrabri for the past 10 years and is excited to be joining the teaching team at Boggabri.
