Congratulations Nokutenda Kwenda
Congratulations to Nokutenda Kwenda (Year 10, Reid), who was accepted into the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program at the University of Melbourne.
This program supports high achieving secondary school students and aims to give students a ‘head start’ on their future studies and career. The University of Melbourne received 1,500 applications, highlighting the competitive nature of the program.
Nokutenda is a very worthy recipient and I commend her for her focus on achieving excellent academic results and in being an engaged member of our school society.
Well done, Noku!
School to Work Pathways
There are many different ways to become a Primary School Teacher. The below infographic (also available for download here) highlights the ‘traditional’ route that a person might follow and two alternate pathways.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), there were 168,900 Primary School Teachers across Australia in 2020. The number of teachers is expected to grow steadily over the next five years and is likely to reach 179,800 by 2025.
Please note that these infographics should be used as a guide only. If you or your child have any specific questions regarding career and course pathway options, I would encourage you to make some time to meet with me.
