Teaching Staff

Teachers at Manning Adventist Bush School offer an ‘all round’ education, which develops the whole person – academic, physical, social and spiritual. We want our students to develop a strong work ethic, to take pride in their work, to be able to communicate at all levels, to act with integrity and to know God. Therefore, our teachers are intentional, experienced, passionate and vibrant.

Our Teachers are integral in giving our students a sense of belonging as well as inspiring our students to enjoy the best possible learning experiences. You will find that our teachers are prompt with follow-up of any student difficulty or circumstance to ensure a lasting effective solution. Our teachers will work closely with parents/carers and students, and offer 3-way (parent, teacher, student) conferences. Our teachers are also available to discuss your child’s learning needs throughout each term
