Core values enrich education
The Bachelor of Education (Primary) / Bachelor of Behavioural Science graduate says Notre Dame’s values-based education has helped her to grow personally and acquire vital professional practices for her career.
“The education Notre Dame provides is more than just lecture content; it’s also about going out into the workforce and developing those professional skills that will help you in your future career,” says, Kerry-Lee.
“There is such a close link between the theoretical knowledge you acquire and the practical learning experiences. The 10-week block prac really prepares you for life in the classroom.”
“I’m really glad the core units in Philosophy, Ethics and Theology are available to students. The content in those units really does transfer across whatever you are studying. What I wasn’t expecting was how much I would develop as a person.
“The University instils core values in its students that encourages them to go about their personal and professional lives with integrity,” Kerry-Lee said. “The staff here are so incredibly supportive but also the people you meet become some of your closest friends.”
Kerry-Lee aspires to work either as a primary school teacher or in the not-for-profit sector.
