Victoria Forrest Room 4 Teacher - Year 8, COL Across School Lead

Vic first started teaching at Oamaru Intermediate in 2006, with breaks here and there to have children and travel.

She has been a Year 7 teacher, Year 8 teacher and for the past 3 years, has taught Digital Technology to both year groups.   

She loves teaching and seeing the light in a student's eye as they 'get it' or overcome a hurdle.  Every day is different in the Digital Technology room, and she is always amazed at what knowledge students bring and how well they challenge themselves and persevere when developing outcomes.

Vic loves being outside - running, biking, camping and water sports are some of her favourite pastimes.  She has two very active young boys at home who keep her on her toes and constantly reminds her how important it is to encourage and support people on their learning journeys.

Vic is also our Waitaki Ara Kahui Ako Across School Lead Teacher.
