Name: Simone McGill - Secondary School Teacher-

What is your role at the College?

I currently teach Humanities (Years 8 and 9), Religious Education (Years 9, 10 and 11) and Indonesian (Year 10). Additionally I am also the Youth Ministry Coordinator.

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

I recently worked with my Year 10 Religious Education class on a project where they collaborated with our Year 5 students in the classroom to learn more about aspects of Aboriginal history, culture and the Dreaming. This was a topic which all Year 10 and Year 5 classes focused on and it was great to be able to collaborate with the Primary School students.

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher?

The most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher is observing students gain new skills and knowledge and being able to share in their success.
