Profile of Western Plains ETA
Rosalee Whiteley, Outgoing President
Manager Branches, ETA
As I sat pondering the writing of this profile my colleague, Mary Doolan, HT English Coonabarabran High School, suggested that I refer to the dog-eared, coffee stained Prescription Statement on Belonging which, in her opinion, epitomises the ethos of our Branch.
‘A sense of belonging can emerge from the connections made with people, places, groups, communities and the larger world.’ (English Stage 6 Prescriptions 2009-2012 Board of Studies NSW, Sydney)
Like many country branches, the strength of the Branch is in its members and, in this regard, Western Plains Branch is very fortunate. We are strongly connected!
