Administration Staff

School Admin Manager

My name is Joanne Bate and I am Rous Public School’s Admin Manager. I have been here since 2008 and really love the small school atmosphere and sense of community this place holds.

I studied the Secretarial Course at Lismore TAFE in 1980, however, I didn’t pursue this line of work until after my 3 beautiful daughters were of school age. I had been helping my husband run and manage our macadamia farm until then, and still do – it’s my hobby!

I feel very lucky to be part of a school that has hard-working, dedicated staff and a bunch of great families that make up this wonderful community.

I like to spend my spare time with family and friends and, of course, patchworking!
