Lithgow High principal Ann Caro was chosen to share her leadership experiences on a panel held as part of the Western NSW Principals' Forum held in Orange last week
Three principals, including Ms Caro, were invited to reflect on leadership and transformation of schools during a panel discussion.
Ms Caro's leadership qualities were recently recognised with a Harvard Club of Australia Principals Scholarship.
The Orange gathering was one of 12 forums for public school principals conducted across regional and metropolitan NSW.
Department of Education Secretary Mark Scott told the Western NSW Education Forum that the vision to create one of the finest education systems in the world would be realised with their ongoing dedication to improvement and transformation.
"Our shared purpose is to put students at the centre of everything we do," Mr Scott said.
"Our work must be driven, and judged, by a focus on the individual child and on constant improvement in every school and classroom.
"We have to make sure that every child is known, valued and cared for."
