Meet our staff – former student Mr Exton

Aug 24, 2020

One of our newest teachers in Primary is Mr Tim Exton, who joined us in 2019, but his NBCS journey started many years before as a former student! Mr Exton has felt very welcomed by the NBCS community and appreciates the supportive and collaborative work environment, and the opportunities for co-teaching across the Stage, providing our students with different learning experiences.

A highlight of the year so far was looking at weather in the Integrated Unit with various experiments: “one memorable experiment was learning how snow is made (both in nature and man-made) and then making our own faux snow”.
