Samantha has stimulated excitement and personal development among her multi-cultural year 1 to 4 students. From organising Book Week to planting a vegetable garden and utilising photography, film and technology in her classes, Samantha has engaged her students through many different activities. Samantha has also learnt to conduct the school choir and has embraced the Jewish culture to assist her students’ learning. Her classes’ recent NAPLAN results proved her approach is successful, with the results well above the benchmark despite many of the students speaking other languages at home.
