After three years of service as principal of the Condobolin High School, Bob Carline has ended his tenure to return to his home in Macksville.

With 34 years of teaching behind him, Bob spoke of how unique an experience his stay in Condobolin was, as the Shire took such a great interest in the school.

“Condobolin hasn’t lost a sense of community,” he said.

Bob became emotional as he expressed how grateful he was to work in a culture dedicated to the community and where teaches don’t just go to work and go home but have complete commitment.

He emphasized the importance of teachers and the significant role they can play in the lives of students.

“As a teacher when you look at a kid in need and you do something small or trivial for them, you don’t know the impact you can have,” he said.

Mayor of the Lachlan Shire, Des Manwaring, spoke of his gratitude to Bob on behalf of the Condobolin community, for his leadership and great contribution.

Robyn Walsh, who will be acting as the relieving principal until there is a new appointment, thanked Bob for his support and encouragement.

Robyn believes that Bob’s greatest contributions to the school included working closely with the staff and putting a big focus on technology.

In his closing remarks Bob assured the school that this isn’t his retirement, because he isn’t really done with teaching yet.
