Lorna Whiston Preschool and English Enrichment Centres

Experienced Leadership


Every team needs a person to rally around, and at Lorna Whiston, we have hired the best of the best to lead the company—from directors behind the scenes to the headteachers on the frontline. It’s our pleasure to introduce the leaders of Lorna Whiston.

Lori Bormann

Headteacher of English Enrichment

Moving from the farmlands of the United States to the hustle’n’bustle of Singapore, Lori has been with Lorna Whiston Schools since 2005.

She has a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a Specialisation in Reading from the University of Iowa, and has been teaching ever since she graduated.

Shockingly, her favourite foods in Singapore are durian and laksa!

Paula Rawlins

Headteacher of Speech & Drama

Paula was born in a small rural part of Ireland called Athlone among leprechauns and their pots o’ gold.

She has received gold and honours distinctions in Speech & Drama from The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

A Trinity College London Communication Skills trainer and coordinator for six years, Paula introduced the program to Lorna Whiston Schools.

Well known as a Sing Moh rather than an Ang Moh, Paula has lived in Singapore for 19 years, 10 of which have been spent with Lorna Whiston.

Renee Stone

Regional Academic Director

Renee is from Perth, Western Australia and has resided in this beautiful country for nineteen years. She has been a teacher and a leader at enrichment centres here for the past sixteen years.

Renee is a passionate educator and believes in empowering her students to achieve success. She values interaction in the classroom as she believes that when students are engaged in the lesson, optimal learning can occur. Renee takes great pleasure in seeing her students develop confidence in their language acquisition.

我是来自中国福建的李莉。由于喜欢孩子的天真与可爱,决定踏入幼教这一行业。并于1990年毕业于中国一所拥有悠久历史的百年女校——泉州幼儿师范学校(现泉州儿童发展职业学院),从1990至今一直投身于幼教行业,在此期间,不仅获得新加坡智源教育学院与北京师范大学所联办的学前儿童教育大专文凭,并多次参加一些在新加坡举办的国际幼儿华文教育研讨会和相关学前教育的各类培训课程,从而不断提升自己的专业水平。

从事幼儿园华文教育多年,我擅长于幼儿演艺、游戏教学和音乐律动。经过多年来经验的累积,我能够根据幼儿的生理心理发展特征,根据幼儿的最近发展区,并从幼儿的经验和兴趣出发,采用多种教学策略,让幼儿在一个轻松愉快的环境中学习与成长。

2004年加入LWP至今,现在是本学园的华文高级教师兼副校长。在做好执教职责之外,还负责带领学校的华文教师共同选编适合本学园教育理念、目标以及与英文主题密切配合的华文教材,力求将园本课程与新加坡教育部统一的小一课程相互衔接,更好的促进幼儿的全面发展。在教材选编方面,力求结合丰富的经验,以专业的眼光和踏实的态度,选编了适宜各年龄阶段幼儿的图书、教具、游戏等教育教学内容,为学园的华文教育发展起到极大的促进作用。
