Lucy Connolly, QLD

"Receiving the Teachers Mutual Bank Future Teachers Scholarship made a huge difference in my university and professional life. The scholarship not only assisted me in buying teaching materials and resources, but enabled me to undertake an additional teaching experience outside of the university calendar. This experience has been invaluable as it has allowed me to develop many more professional relationships and to gain a deeper understanding of the type of teacher that I hope to become."
"I believe that COVID-19 has sped up the move towards a fully online mode of teaching, while simultaneously giving us a deeper appreciation for the relationships we have with those around us."

"I am so beyond grateful for the financial security this Scholarship provided me, especially through a year of undeniable uncertainty. In terms of my studies, I was able to take time off from my employment to focus on my final practicum, knowing I had the financial means to do so."
"COVID-19 undeniably changed the ways in which children learn. Predominately due to the heightened access to ICT, which also drove more equal opportunities for every student to learn. I hope all students continue to have access to ICT in the future and teachers use it to empower students."
