History of Rona Glynn

Rona Glynn Preschool is named after Rona Ellen Glynn, the first Indigenous teacher in Australia. Rona taught at Hartley Street School in Alice Springs from 1952-1954. Later in life, Rona became a midwife and returned to Alice Springs, delivering more than 2000 babies in the Alice Springs Hospital. In 1965, shortly after her death, Rona Glynn Preschool was opened in her honour.
