I am a second-year student studying a bachelor degree in primary education at Southern Cross University.

Recently I was given the opportunity to complete my practical placement at the Pocket Public School, during which time I spent a month observing and teaching at the school.

Throughout this placement I witnessed the most passionate, kind, caring and supportive teachers to date. These educators encompass what it truly means to be a great teacher, and certainly one I aspire to be.

The Pocket Public School not only nurtures the children but also supports each and every learner. This is why the children are such lovely, free-spirited, kind and respectful students.

To those wonderful teachers and staff, thank you for doing such a brilliant job.
