Welcome back, Eliza-Jane Rundle from the Class of 2012 who is currently undertaking a pre-service teaching placement here at Clonard working in the Physical Education, Health and Mathematics Learning areas.
After Clonard, Eliza-Jane began an undergraduate degree in Podiatry at Charles Sturt University in Albury-Wodonga, living there for 3 years before returning to Geelong to pursue other avenues. Eliza-Jane gained employment at St Joseph’s College as an Education Support Officer, where a passion for helping students came to life and prompted her return to study at Deakin University, undertaking a Secondary Teaching degree specialising in Physical Education, Health and Mathematics.
‘I am very proud to be back doing my rounds at Clonard. A school that was very good to my sister and myself and we have some amazing memories to support that. The classes I have are amazing and very welcoming. It is special that Sarah Fish was teaching me in Year 12 and now is my mentor teacher when I am learning to teach. Best Role Model’. – Eliza-Jane Rundle
