Originally from Adelaide, Tim developed his passion for teaching when he was a Residential Tutor at Pembroke. Like many of our teaching staff, he has furthered this passion by studying his Master of Education and will graduate later this year. Tim loves to get involved in school life; he has participated in many extra-curricular activities and school trips, and has been the Head of Rowing. He is about to take 14 students to Cambodia for a month long World Challenge Expedition. Tim’s approach to teaching Mathematics is very well aligned with our pedagogy and Tim has been leading the way in the integration of digital technologies in the Mathemathics curriculum. He will be a great addition to our team and will lead the development of STEM.
