Simon is an experienced and gifted educator who is dedicated to improving student learning. He sets high expectations for himself and students, but has the ability to organise learning activities to support all children to achieve success. In working at our school, Simon’s dedication went far beyond the classroom, as he contributed to the leadership team and worked consistently to improve the organisation of the whole school and the welfare of the students. He also played an active part in the school’s sports programs, coaching football, rugby, cricket and athletics, and helping children achieve success outside the classroom as well. Simon believes that each student is capable of taking responsibility for their own learning and development. At our school, he empowered students to set and achieve the goals that were important to them.
