State Education Excellence Awards

This week were pleased to celebrate the outstanding achievement for our Business Manager, Shirley Niblett.  Shirley was awarded Business Manager of the Year at the recent Victorian Education Excellence Awards.  A very well deserved award to an outstanding and passionate Lara Secondary College staff member and leader.

Shirley Niblett is devoted to building capacity and excellence in business managers in Victorian government schools.  Described by her Principal as her greatest asset, Shirley has instigated numerous programs and efficiencies to make life easier for staff, students and parents alike at Lara Secondary College.

While delivering the highest standards in her own demanding role, Shirley also invests much time developing learning opportunities for her professional peers.

She established the North Network for Business Managers across 27 primary and secondary schools, and the Geelong Secondary Schools Business Managers Association.

Shirley sets ambitious goals for herself and provides mentoring and support to others to strive for the same.
