As a child growing up in Papua New Guinea I was fortunate to have had many experiences which has helped me to develop an interest in the outdoors and in the environment. Many years later, after having followed life’s many twists and turns, I have found myself fortunate enough to be able to contribute to the learning community at the School of Student Leadership, here at the Alpine Campus.

In my early 20’s I developed a broad range of skills in industries ranging from outdoor education to viticulture, whilst regularly competing in marathon kayaking. In 2008, having completed a degree in Environmental Science and a Graduate Diploma in Education, I started teaching Science and Biology to secondary students in the outer Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. A few years later I added years 9 and 10 Outdoor Education to my repertoire. I received the opportunity to teach VCE Outdoor Education when my family and I moved to Warrnambool.

My wife Karen and I have two young children, Jack and Grace, who are both very active and keep us very busy.

My interests include, amongst many other things, surfing, snorkelling, kayaking, bushwalking and gardening.

I feel privileged to have been provided the opportunity to contribute to the School for Student Leadership. I look forward to guiding my year nine students through such a crucial stage of their lives, as they journey towards adulthood.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are three campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place".

Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
