About the Principal
Cheryl Bauer is a student centred educator who has extensive experience
and qualifications in education, management and interpersonal
relationships. She has worked in country and city, co-educational,
single sex, government and independent schools. In addition Cheryl has
worked as a subject adviser and project officer in the Education Office
and with student teachers at a University.
She believes that the education of children is the most important role in our society. Our children are our future and we have a responsibility to develop their skills, capabilities, knowledge, values and confidence to equip them for their future contribution to society. That belief brings her to the conclusion that schooling is more than academic results and requires a holistic approach to the development of individuals.
Cheryl believes that all children can be intelligent and powerful learners if schools can learn how to enable this. To make this a reality the areas Cheryl concentrates on are the relationship between teacher and learner, engagement of the student, negotiating with students and by providing a range of curriculum options.
