Hello to the Beerwah and Glasshouse Communities
My name is Lyn McDonald and I feel extremely privileged to have been appointed to the permanent position of Principal at Beerwah SHS. I 'm looking forward to working with the community to support the school and students and staff.
I started my teaching career on the sunshine coast at Burnside SHS over 30 years ago. Since then I've taught at various locations across the state including Ayr SHS, Morayfield SHS, Narangba Valley SHS, Qld Academy of Creative Industries and Dysart SHS. My teaching background is in the area of Business and ICT Digital Technologies. In 2015 I completed a Masters of Education (Research) where I analysed the impact that professional development has on experienced teachers' use of ICTs in their classrooms.
I'm a relational leader and I look forward to meeting new people and talking to staff, students, parents and the community to understand how I can best lead and support the vision and improvement agenda of the school.
I've been so impressed with the respect that our students have shown to me, the care and commitment that our dedicated, capable and experienced staff show on a continual basis and the number of interesting and engaging curricular and extra-curricular activities that are occurring in the school. I've also enjoyed visiting the primary schools in the region in order to meet the Principals and staff as well as introduce myself to the Yr 6s.
I would love to meet and greet with community members, local business and community organisations. Feel free to make contact at any time with the school or through my email at email@example.com if you would like to visit the school, work with our staff or students or if you would like to discuss how we can work together to support the students.
Looking forward to meeting you.
