Our staff members have been working at Jumbo for a long time, good working relationships have been formed and even though times get tough and staff get tired, we all help each other when needed.
Kathy Munro took over Jumb Pre-Primary School in 1997, Kathy was a home exce, who had oodles of eperience and knowledge regarding children having dedicated her time and life to her 2 girls. Kathy was always the person everyone would run to when they were having trouble with their own children. Learning the business and running of the school was a challenge, but once she found her footing she was on her way to running a happy school. Kathy now is still the principal and teaches the Koala class (4 -5 years) and a very involved grandmother to her 2 grandchildren Noah and Shelby.
Michelle Munro has been teaching at Jumbo since 1996, she is the daughter of Kathy Munro and one day she came home and told her mother that the owners of Jumbo were selling the school and she was worried she was going to lose her job. Her father Kevin said we should buy the school, and they did and 21 years later here we are. Michelle is the teacher for the Panda class (3 - 4 years), Michelle has taught many different classes and is knowledgeable in all the classes offered at Jumbo. She says she prefers to teach the little ones and has stuck with the Panda class for 10 years now.
