Faces of Clonard
Meet Mrs Lesley De Noronha. Although, there is no doubt most students and families already have. Lesley has held several positions in her thirteen years at Clonard but has always remained central to the daily operations of the General Office.
Currently, working in the role of Admin Team Leader, Lesley considers it a privilege to work in partnership with the Admin Team to ensure the best possible outcomes are met for our students, community & staff. With much appreciation in the knowledge that a day at Clonard is full of excitement & variety, general duties include coordinating bus and conveyance operations, Operoo communications, VASS, First Aid and student medical administration. However, anyone at Clonard will know, Lesley is your go-to person for many situations and always a solution is found.
‘After an active day in the office there is always a kind smile or a voice of encouragement around Clonard College. It is an honour to play a small part within the bigger purpose of the College that is centred around core values of hope that impact young lives and our greater community through Strength and Kindliness’. – Mrs Lesley De Noronha.
