I have been teaching at Clunes Public School since 2009. This year I have a 5/6 class. In our classroom and at our school our students adopt a caring and positive attitude to one another and show a commitment to excellence in all areas of the curriculum. We ‘Learn to live & Live to learn.'

Mr Malcolm Sky – Classroom Teacher

As a teacher of Aboriginal heritage I enjoy learning Aboriginal language and integrating Aboriginal perspectives in the classroom.  I am keen to work with all students to support their academic progress and nurture their development in a pastoral way. I am keen to adopt new technology and to seek best practice to meet the learning needs of the students in the classroom. I have organised the school's NAIDOC Day ceremonies, Cross Country carnival, coached soccer and tennis teams, whilst also working collaboratively with other teachers.

I am a passionate teacher who loves to extend students to achieve their best.  I differentiate within my classromm to allow my students to succeed and drive themselves toward their personal learning goals and become self-sufficient learners.  

I am extremely happy to continue my teaching career at Clunes Public School with such a wonderful collaborative and caring community and staff team.

2023 is my second year of teaching at Clunes Public School, however I have been a part of the wonderful Clunes team for over seven years as a Student Learning Support Officer.  I am passionate about giving every child the best learning opportunity available, and love to see their knowledge grow.  I am looking forward to another wonderful year of engaging in learning and building strong relationships with our students.

Mrs Naomi Northey-Manser - Digital Classroom Officer

I came to Clunes School through a permanent transfer from the New England region.  I have been teaching at Clunes since 2019, where I have been lucky enough to teach across all year levels of the school, on both an individual basis and with small groups.  I feel incredibly lucky to work as part of such a welcoming community and I continue to grow, learn and refine my ongoing teaching practice to meet the ever changing needs of our community in our changing world.

Miss Phoebe Morwood - Teacher

I have spent the last 10 years teaching all over Australia, with lots of time spent in remote areas of the Kimberley.  I enjoy teaching across the grades K-6, and particularly enjoy teaching all forms of art.

It is my belief that all children, from all parts of the country deserve the right to a great education and should feel safe and happy at school.

Our support staff are dedicated members who work quietly in the background to ensure the smooth running of the school.
