International Student Co-ordinator & Learning Assistant
This is my sixth year at Marian school and I really enjoy working alongside students and teachers. Over the last term I have moved into a new role as Pastoral care assistant, which involves working with our international students. This is a role I love. Interacting with children and learning all about their cultures, while at the same time teaching them about ours is a wonderful experience. Most importantly, I enjoy making all of our families feel welcome.
Tricia started as a teacher and then served on a Mission Station in Vanuatu for three Years. After that, she returned to her hometown of Invercargill and spent nine years working as a Chaplain at the Invercargill Prison. From there, she moved to Geraldton, Western Australia and worked as the Support Officer to Victim’s of Crime for sixteen years, as well as working on a Programme for those people who had multiple barriers to employment. She was then asked to move into management for the agency she was employed by, as the Programmes Manager, where she was responsible for working with the Counselling Team, the Volunteer Service, and the smaller offices in more remote areas of the outback.
