Western NSW Regional Director appointed

Ms Carole McDiarmid has been appointed Western NSW Regional Director under the Department's new administration structure.

Ms McDiarmid is one of 10 Regional Directors who represent the start of significant cultural and service delivery changes in the Department.

This new structure has given the Department a renewed focus on supporting frontline teachers and school staff and enables the provision of better responses to local issues.

The creation of school educational areas within the regional structure also ensures that support services, such as curriculum consultants, welfare and training experts, remain close to local schools. 

The Western NSW Region office is in Dubbo, with school educational areas in Bathurst, Bourke, Broken Hill, Dubbo and Orange; 203 public schools are located in the Region.
