Farewell to our New York Student Teachers


​Recently we formally farewelled our New York student teachers- Mr B (Andrew) in Family E and Miss Kimberly in Family D. They have been an integral part of our Chevallum Family over the past nine weeks.

Kimberley and Andrew are student teachers from the State Univeristy of New York and have been in Australia particpating in the practical teaching requirement of their degree.

An for the first time in many years our USA visitors were able to experience the lead up to and the excitment of our annual Strawbfest, showcasing the great community spirit of Chevallum.

They have been so brave to travel far away from their families and teach in a country where the education system is very different. However, children are children all over the world and great teaching is great teaching - catering for students’ individual learning needs and building strong relationships.

We wish Andrew and Kimberly well in their future teaching careers.
