It is with great pleasure and confidence that I announce the appointment of Donna Laughlin to the position of Deputy Principal Learning and Teaching, from January 2021. Donna is currently the Director of Learning and Innovation, and a member of the Leadership Team. Donna has held a number of leadership roles during her ten years at Siena College, including Head of Learning English and Leader of Pedagogy. Donna holds a Bachelor of Arts from Latrobe University, a Graduate Diploma in Education and a Graduate Certificate in Religious Education from the Australian Catholic University, and a Masters in Educational Leadership from the Australian Catholic University. This year Donna was nominated for The Educator’s 2020 Hot List. This prestigious award recognises professionals at the cutting edge of educational excellence in Australia.
Donna is a warm and relational leader with a strong commitment to the learning of young women within a faith based framework. I have no doubt that she will continue to build on Siena College’s strong foundations and the exemplary work of Bernadette Donnelly over past years. Congratulations Donna.
