Miss Bowkett will be missed
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.
FOR THE CHILDREN: Laurel Bowkett leaves the post ofMonto State School principal after 13 years.
