Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

The new prin­ci­pal of Rapids Land­ing Pri­mary School scored a top hon­our last week from the Prin­ci­pals Aus­tralia In­sti­tute.

In­com­ing prin­ci­pal Lisa He­le­nius was hon­oured with one of four John Laing Award prizes for com­mit­ment to education and school lead­er­ship.

The peer-nom­i­nated award recog­nised Ms He­le­nius for “ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence as a highly suc­cess­ful school prin­ci­pal and ef­fi­cient leader ... sup­ported by a rep­u­ta­tion for ex­cel­lence, in­clu­sion and high care for the com­mu­ni­ties she works with”.

PAI chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul Geyer said the award recog­nised school lead­ers in a fast-chang­ing field where “school lead­er­ship has never been more in­flu­en­tial in shap­ing society”.
