Renee Yonge

Renee initially came to BPCS as a parent in 2007, when the first of her three children started in Pre-Kindy. She started volunteering and never left. Renee has given her time as a parent class coordinator and spent time on the BPCS Advisory Board as Secretary, Deputy Chair and Chair. Renee worked in all areas of BPCS as a relief co-educator prior to completing her Graduate Diploma of Education (Primary) at Murdoch University in 2014. Renee is a lifelong student herself and she followed her Graduate Diploma by completing a Graduate Certificate in Mental Health online with Southern Cross University in 2021, and most recently a Masters in Mental Health and Wellbeing in Adolescents and Children through UWA 2022.

Renee has been working as lead teacher in the Upper Primary classroom since 2017. She is passionate about the whole child and believes the social/emotional learning and support of our students to be of great importance in every classroom. Renee has a passion for learning and enjoys finding new approaches to topics to encourage her students to engage with and enjoy their time at school.

Not always a teacher, Renee has held a range of roles. After completing a B. Communications and training as a mediator, she moved to the UK. There she enjoyed watching a lot of live theatre while working in the Oil and Gas industry. She project-managed a heritage renovation project at Kensington Gore and supported the final editing run prior to publication of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. After yet another cold and dark birthday, she decided to travel further afield and became a tour leader on overland tours from Nairobi to Cape Town. Finally returning to Australia, Renee worked as a paralegal, trained as a birth doula, and moved to Perth where she worked for the Quest Learnery until she finally found her ‘home’ at Bold Park.


“A school has the responsibility not only to engage their community in the pursuit of academic skills but to promote an attitude of life-long learning and thus keep the light alive in children’s eyes.”
