The Wheatbelt Region

The Wheatbelt Education Regional Office is located in Northam with a Local Education Office in Narrogin. The Wheatbelt Education Regional Office (WERO) provides support to schools to deliver quality educational opportunities and outcomes for students in diverse school and Wheatbelt community settings.

The Wheatbelt Education Region comprises 70 public schools providing kindergarten - Year 12 school-based education programs for over 10,000 students in the wheatbelt area of Western Australia.

The 70 schools of the Wheatbelt Education Region are incorporated into six networks of schools. The majority of essential support services to schools now operate through schools and networks. Networks also maximise each School’s opportunity to share ideas, resources and professional support.

The Wheatbelt Education Regional Office (Northam) and the Local Office (Narrogin) provide operational, administrative and support services for networks of all public schools in the Wheatbelt Education Region. The Wheatbelt Education Regional Office has been established to allow community menbers to approach senior Department representatives with issues and problems for local resolution.

This regional office is headed by the Regional Executive Director, Alison Ramm.
