Perenjori Primary School principal Jenny Hirsch will study at Harvard University next year, as part of a prestigious leadership program run by the Liberal National Government.

Moore MP, Shane Love MLA said Mrs Hirsch would travel to the prestigious university in Boston to learn from the world’s best at the Graduate School of Education.

“Mrs Hirsch is one of 20 of WA’s top Independent Public School principals taking part in the program in 2017,” Mr Love said.

“They’ll spend a week at Harvard, after which time they’ll go on to complete an online course while taking on projects to make their local schools even better.”

The principals will form a pool of skilled leaders who can as mentors to other principals and contribute to school leadership development programs across Western Australia’s public schools.

Harvard University was chosen because of its international reputation for excellence in school leadership development

“As Principal of Perenjori Primary School, Mrs Hirsch has already shown she can push the boundaries of what is possible and bring innovation into the classroom,” Mr Love said. 

Each principal who completes the program will become an Independent Public School Fellow.
