New ACHPER WA President

Previous Board member Donna Barwood was recently elected as the new President for ACHPER WA at our November Annual General Meeting. Here’s a bit of information about Donna, in her own words.


“As the new President for ACHPER WA, I would like to take this time to briefly introduce myself and say Hi…

I am a passionate HPE teacher, currently working as Coordinator of HPE at Edith Cowan University.  In the past I have worked in government, Catholic and Independent private schools; teaching primary, secondary and now tertiary students. I have held the role of Head of Department at Iona Presentation College, and Curriculum Writer and Senior Project Officer with the Department of Education, and ACARA as writer developing the Australian Curriculum for HPE.

I am truly enthusiastic when listening to my fellow HPE colleagues and I hope to build a diverse professional learning agenda that not only reflects next and best practice but responds to the needs of our HPE community.

Here’s to 2018 and all things ACHPER!”
