Champion – Miss Emma Forrest

Our School has always been an academically focused school and prides itself on being home to some of the most hard-working academic students across the state, year in and year out.

Tyndale has a tradition of excellence, with graduates working in:

  • The Space Academy;
  • US Congress internships;
  • Defence;
  • Engineering;
  • Politics;
  • Law; and
  • Psychology after completing their education.

Miss Emma Forrest, champions the Tertiary Plus Senior School focus. Miss Forrest has called Tyndale home for 10 years now and is our Humanities Curriculum Leader and Senior School Teacher. She’s received her Bachelors in Education (Majors in History and English) and her Graduate Diploma of Education. Her students have achieved multiple Merits in Research Project, English and History, she’s done marking and moderation for SACE and has mentored a preservice teacher most years. We are blessed to have someone of her calibre here at Tyndale.

What sets Emma apart from her colleagues is her passion for learning and curiosity for her subjects. She committed to consistently upskilling students by writing engaging and relevant programmes and going above and beyond to provide feedback. She’s energetic, approachable and caring to all her students and she’s able to get the best out of them.

“I love teaching students about History, not just about seeing the past more but how that’s interconnected with the present”, said Miss Forrest during a ‘Meet The Team’ Facebook video that aired in 2020.

“The discussions that we have in History are so much bigger than the classroom and that’s why I’m so passionate about Senior students engaging with History throughout their time at School. I love seeing my students learn about places and people that are so different and diverse from what they know and the empathy, understanding and awareness they develop along the way”.

Miss Forrest is a true ambassador of Tyndale’s brand values: Intentionally Christian, Intentionally Inclusive, Intentionally Excellent and Life-long learning and has demonstrated this with a decade of teaching and leading here at Tyndale.
