The position will take effect from Term 1. 2019.

Lynda comes to Moriah from Carmel Primary School in Perth, where she has been the Head of Primary since 2010 and Deputy Head from 2008-2010. Lynda was also the gifted and talented education co-ordinator, literacy and research coordinator, and facilitator of cross-curricular opportunities from 2006-2010 and taught Year 5 from 2000-2005.

Key to Lynda’s appointment to Moriah College is her success in establishing a culture at Carmel School that makes Jewish children secure in their sense of belonging and identity. This achievement was strongly supported by her well-structured, exemplary approach to inclusive education for students of all different levels of ability.

Lynda’s abilities as an educator and leader were recognised by her peers with her appointment as President of the Independent Primary School Heads Association (IPSHA) WA in 2014. Lynda has also been awarded the John Laing Professional Development Award for leading initiatives and learning among leaders, in addition to receiving a High Achievers Award from the National Council of Jewish Women.

“Based on her outstanding credentials and her conduct during the interview process, we feel assured in entrusting our Primary School to Lynda and we know that she is very excited about the opportunities ahead of her,” said Moriah College President, Stephen Jankelowitz. “Lynda is a highly regarded and respected Jewish educator who will make a significant contribution to our College and ensure we continue to deliver best practice education to our children.”
