Meet the new teach­ers in Proser­pine

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

NEW teach­ers Adam Philip­son and Lisa Cameron share fond mem­o­ries of their se­nior years at Proser­pine State High School and were de­lighted to walk through the gates as teach­ers this year.

They are two of 10 new teach­ers to be wel­comed in Proser­pine this year.

Adam at­tended Proser­pine State School from 1984-1990, and went on to grad­u­ate from Proser­pine State High School in 1995.

He has joined the school as a Stud­ies of So­ci­ety and En­vi­ron­ment (SOSE) and busi­ness teacher.

“It’s a bit of a time warp. Some of the teach­ers that taught me in the early 90’s are still here and they have been very sup­port­ive,” he said.

Fel­low staff mem­ber Lisa Cameron grad­u­ated from Proser­pine State High School in 1998, and has re­turned as a maths and science teacher.

Also new to the school are Jane Mo­ran, Kahlia Good­win, Julie Daniel and Jodi Gib­son, who is the new science head of depart­ment.

Mean­while, year 3-4 teacher So­phie Smith is one of the two new faces to join St Cather­ine’s Catholic Col­lege.

She has lived in the Whit­sun­days for the past seven years, com­plet­ing her Bach­e­lor of Ed­u­ca­tion by cor­re­spon­dence with the Univer­sity of South­ern Queens­land.

Proser­pine State School wel­comed three new ed­u­ca­tors to their team in­clud­ing act­ing prin­ci­pal Ali­son Brad­ford.

Mrs Brad­ford has worked as a deputy prin­ci­pal in north Queens­land schools for the past 12 years, and moved to the Whit­sun­days in Septem­ber to take on her new po­si­tion.

NEW ED­U­CA­TORS: Act­ing prin­ci­pal Ali­son Brad­ford, with year 4 teacher Rachelle Tre­vi­siol and year 2 teacher Haylee Why­bird have joined the team at Proser­pine State High School this year.

FRESH FACES: Teach­ers Jane Mo­ran, Kahlia Good­win, Adam Philip­son, Lisa Cameron and Julie Daniel have joined the ded­i­cated team of ed­u­ca­tors at Proser­pine State High School.
