Cobar Preschool has elected a full committee to lead the centre this year after a crisis meeting was held last week.
The crisis meeting was held after a previous attempt to elect a committee at an earlier annual general meeting was unsuccessful.
Last Wednesday’s meeting had a very good turnout with 22 people in attendance and six apologies.
Leah Josephson was elected as the new president and will be supported by Jacqueline Smith as vice president, Kylie Bullion as treasurer, Stephanie Hay as secretary, Amanda Beer as public officer and a large group of 14 general committee members.
Cobar Preschool’s new director Kristi Martin said that with such a large committee there are sure to be many new ideas.
Kristi has taken over the role of director this year after working for the past six years as an assistant at the school.
She told The Cobar Weekly she has lived in Cobar for 30 years and has almost completed a Bachelor of Education.
Kristi is supported at the preschool by five other permanent part-time staff mem-bers.
Recently the preschool had a new shade structure built with bark chip flooring and new sand has filled the sandpits.
Future projects include upgrading the fixed equipment and adding a mud kitchen, climbing frame and tee pee to the shaded bark chip area.
Mrs Martin said the preschool does not fundraise outside of the standard fundraising levy, annual bike-a-thon and book club.
She said the preschool is currently running at full capacity with no vacancies.
