Sunshine Coast Grammar graduates embark on teaching career

Sunshine Coast Grammar School is proud to announce the recipients of the Presbyterian and Methodist Schools Association Teacher Education Scholarships for 2024, Chloe Merrett and Tamsin Roberts (2023 Graduates).

Valued at $2000 per year for up to four years, the Scholarship Program is designed to support and encourage aspiring teachers who exhibit excellence in the Christian faith, school service, academic achievement, and a passion for education.

Chloe’s journey toward her teaching career began during her time at School when she secured a traineeship at Grammar Early Learning Centre. Immersed in the vibrant world of early childhood education, Chloe’s dedication and enthusiasm was clear as she completed her Certificate III in Early Childhood and Education.

Reflecting on her journey, Chloe shared, “Since I was young, I knew that teaching was something I wanted to do and completing my Certificate III confirmed that for me.”

Fellow student, Tasmin Roberts is passionate about teaching and learning and expressed a similar sentiment.

“Primary school education has been my life-long dream, I can’t imagine doing anything else,” said Tamsin.

Inspired by the impact of her parents’ work in helping children to learn and grow at school, Tamsin is excited to make a positive difference.

“I am looking forward to the challenge and becoming a primary shcool teacher,” said Tamsin.

Currently, Chloe is working at Grammar Early Learning Centre while embarking on her teaching degree alongside Tamsin at the University of the Sunshine Coast, where they are pursuing a Bachelor of Primary Education. In addition to her studies, Tamsin continues to inspire young athletes as a dedicated Coach at Maroochy Beach Gymnastics.

We wish both Chloe and Tamsin success in their academic and professional journeys ahead.

Congratulations Chloe and Tamsin!
