New Kamaroi Principal announcement

3 November 2016

Dear Kamaroi School Community,

I write to share some exciting news with the Kamaroi Community.  At the end of June this year, we announced that Virginia Moller had decided to resign from her position as Principal of Kamaroi at the end of 2016 to complete her PhD and pursue other professional interests in the field of Steiner education.  Virginia has been involved in our school community for almost 20 years as a parent, staff member and leader for the past 9 years. Virginia has worked quietly and tirelessly for the betterment of Kamaroi.

It gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of Olga Blasch as Principal of Kamaroi.

Olga would like to share a summary of her educational journey with our community…

I am passionate about teaching and learning and have been a teacher and school administrator for about 34 years. My teaching career started in Catholic schools in NSW and the ACT.

When my first child started school at Orana Steiner School in 1990 I also became heavily involved as a parent and relief teacher. I was a member of the Parents and Friends Association (P&F) and the School Council. My link to the P&F has continued throughout the years.

In 1995 I was first employed at Orana as a special education teacher. Since then I have been a class teacher, taking two classes from class 1 to 7 as well as the Director of Students in the Primary School and Assistant Principal for the Primary School.

I have been a member of the College of Teachers for eighteen years and in this time was the College Chair and a member of the school Board for five years.

My heart is for Steiner education; I have seen how many students, including my own four children, have grown into compassionate, well-grounded people, full of potential and ready to face the challenges of the world.

I am looking forward to moving to Kamaroi for the next stage of my educational journey and feel privileged to be able to share and learn from the school community of teachers, parents and students.

Olga will commence as Principal in January 2017.  We look forward to Olga building on the successes of the past and Virginia’s outstanding legacy, as well as leading Kamaroi into the future.  We invite you to join us in welcoming her to this role.

Yours sincerely,

Kate Jenkins
Board Chairperson
