Mrs Jeanette Barnes
Jeanette commenced as a member of the Calrossy Anglican School Board at the beginning of 2014. She brings a strong background in education, both from senior maths teaching and from lead-coordinator of government-funded education programmes, particularly through TAFE NSW New England Institute.
In the past, Jeanette coordinated the Commonwealth funded Language, Literacy and Numeracy Program for TAFE NSW New England Institute, and at present she coordinates the Tertiary Preparation Certificate - TAFE’s ‘Year 12 equivalent’ qualification at Tamworth campus.
Jeanette is a Christian and a member of St Pauls Anglican Church West Tamworth.
She believes that a strong academic education with an emphasis on thinking, reasoning, communicating and problem solving is a priceless gift, both for our young people and for the future of our society; and furthermore, that when this same education is delivered in a Christian context, it provides the framework for wise and good choices and considerate decision making within the next generation.
