NEW Whitton Public School principal Jeremy Campbell has not just brought a breath of fresh air to the first weeks of term, but new ideas as well.
Mr Campbell has been appointed to the position for 12 months after acting principal Gary Workman finished at the end of last year.
It is his first time as principal, but after gaining many years experience at working at a nearby small school, Mr Campbell said it was a challenge he was looking forward to.
"Before I was appointed here I was at Ganmain Public School, so I know plenty about small schools," he said.
"I enjoy working in small schools ... I find them really fun.
"I'll be a teaching principal here. I'm really looking forward to it."
Whitton Public has 20 students this year, including small year 5 and year 6 classes.
Mr Campbell has set many goals for the coming year.
"I'm hoping to continue to build on the relationship with the community and other small schools in the area," he said.
"We want that to be a strong relationship ... I also want to build on continuing to promote public education."
It's been a busy start to the new school year for Mr Campbell, who was born and bred in Narrandera and travels to Whitton each day.
"It has been pretty hectic to start off with, but busy is good," he said.
"There are great kids and great staff here, so I'm really looking forward to working with everyone.
"I'm really excited for the year ahead."
