Support staff

School administrative and support staff:

Mari Wikstrom - School Administrative Manager

I was born in Wollongong and have lived in many towns before settling in Moree in 1988. I have worked in the NSW Department of Education for 11 years, spending 8 of those at Moree Secondary College both in the office and assisting students in food technology classes. I am proud to support and be part of a team that strives, not only to improve learning outcomes for our students, but to also give them a love of school and learning they may have lost, or never known. I love working in the happy and supportive environment that we have here at Barwon.

Damian Boland - General Assistant

I was born and bred in Wee Waa and moved to Moree in 2008. I have worked as a furniture removalist for most of my life, and have worked in the gardens. I love working in the excellent environment of BLC and am passionate and proud about my work.

Hi, my name is Veronica Duncan. I am a proud Kamilaroi woman who is employed as an Aboriginal Education Officer at Barwon Learning Centre. I am someone who is very passionate about my family, honest, reliable, but at the same time able to connect encourage and accommodate students and parents in a professional manner.

Billy Walker - Volunteer

I am a proud Bundjalung man with a passion for celebrating and preserving his culture. My interests include rugby league and golf. I like to volunteer at Barwon Learning Centre, where I often act as a cultural mentor and advisor. My belief is that this will go a long way to help giving students back their identity and spirituality. This will give the students a strong foundation for a better and brighter future.
