Congratulations to our very own award nominee

The Casey Australia Day Awards have been proudly celebrating remarkable Casey citizens since 1981. Every year, when our nation celebrates Australia Day, Casey celebrates the achievements and contributions of eminent Casey citizens at the Casey Australia Day Awards.

The Awards profile leading citizens and groups, either professional or voluntary, who are role models for us all. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Casey.

These awards provide the opportunity to recognise individuals and we are proud to congratulate our very own Mrs. Carroll, who was nominated in 2017 for her work around the ACE program. Mrs. Carroll initiated and managed a new community service program for Year 7 students in 7A.

Students visited Lynbrook Kindergarten, Lifeview Willow Wood Residential Care Home and Mums Supporting Families in Need to gain valuable experience and learn new skills. The program has also helped the College to build partnerships with these local organisations and develop stronger community relationships. Mrs. Carroll who is a Teacher of Maths, Science and Biology has recently gained the role for 2018 of Community and Innovation Leader and is working at redeveloping the VCAL program. Furthermore, Mrs. Carroll has been heavily involved in implementing Digital Technology and STEM into the college curriculum.

Mrs. Carroll’s passion and dedication to her work at Lyndhurst Secondary College has inspired many of her colleagues who nominated her for the Casey Awards in 2017.

Mrs. Carroll says “My goal is for all students to see their potential and embrace all of the opportunities offered to them. You never know what you will encounter when you are a teacher, every day is different and you learn something new each time you work with these young people which is very satisfying. I love making a “difference” to so many students lives.

We are thankful to have such wonderful teachers at Lyndhurst Secondary College.
