Principal sad to leave welcoming community

By Daniel Hughes

After two years at the helm of St Joseph's, Jerilderie, principal Nick Braybon is moving on.

Mr Braybon will return to St Michael's School in Deniliquin, where he taught for three years before joining the St Jospeh's School community.

He will be the school's principal, replacing Bernadette Murphy is the top job.

While excited for the opportunity, Mr Braybon said he is sad to leave a community that accepted him so warmly.

“One of the best parts to working for St Joseph's was how well I was welcomed into such a tight knit community,” he said.

“I've met a lot of terrific people in my two years here - the parents, staff and the whole community took me in as one of their own and made me feel at home.

“I was very fortunate to have worked with such professional and welcoming staff.”

St Joseph's will be welcoming John Carey as principal in 2020, who has previously worked in Holbrook and Culcairn.

“I'm sure he will want to take the school in his own direction but expect he will also continue the excellent work the staff and community do for the school and students.”
