Meet the Teacher - Mr. Trent Brownjohn

News date: 


In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Mr. Trent Brownjohn, a member of our Health and Physical Education Teaching Team.

Name: Trent Brownjohn – Secondary Teacher –  

What is your role at the College?

I am currently teaching Health & Physical Education and Maths within Years 7-12. I also coach a variety of sports. I live down in the Fitness Centre!

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently working on with one of your classes?

Currently with my Year 8 classes we are working on the topic of Water Safety. It’s something I am very passionate about as I used to volunteer my time as a lifesaver. I also love anything to do with water – surfing, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, boating. We live in a country surrounded by water but still too many people lose their lives by drowning. 

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Making a difference in someone’s life. It might be a student or even a colleague but to know I’ve helped them in some way makes me very proud. Helping someone learn a new skill, challenging someone or even making someone smile is so very rewarding.
