LAU­REL Bowkett steps down as Monto State School Prin­ci­pal this week.

This closes the door on 13 years of ser­vice to the school as both prin­ci­pal and a va­ri­ety of teach­ing roles.

Miss Bowkett takes up the role of prin­ci­pal at Moura State School next term.

This will be both a farewell from Monto and a wel­come back to Moura.

“I guess you’d say this is full cir­cle as Moura is where my teach­ing ca­reer be­gan,” Miss Bowkett said.

“I have worn many hats at Monto, there’s been PE, science and year 4 and 5.”

“There will no doubt be a change of pace from 123 stu­dents at Monto to over 300 at Moura.”

Miss Bowkett will be farewelled from Monto with a sausage siz­zle at the school on Fri­day.

Next term Mr Matthew Sil­vester will take up the role of prin­ci­pal.
