Dear Parents/Guardians, 


It is with both joy and sadness that I write this message. The time has come for me to hang up my Dromana College Parent Liaison hat at the end of this term.

After 36 years connected with the college, with my 3 daughters and grandchildren attending the College over that time, with the last 20 in my current role.  I can honestly say it has  been a pleasure to serve you.

I have supervised thousands of you in many roles from hosting  Japanese or Indonesian students,  College Council, parents & Friends, Brekky club, Peninsula Teenage Fashion & Art Exhibition, Bunnings BBQ, working bees, scribing, careers expo, school productions, donations and much more.

I would like to sincerely thank you all for your dedication to me and the College.

I would also like to thank all the staff both past and present, for all your support, both personally and professionally.

I will miss the College as it has been part of my life, for more than half my life.

I look forward to becoming one of the volunteers in the years to come.

Please continue to volunteer, donate and support the College as best you can.
