Staff Happenings at Greendale

There has been a lot going on in Term 3 for Greendale Sec, especially with regard to its staff:

Education & Career Guidance (ECG) Counsellor

The Greendale Family is pleased to welcome our ECG Counsellor, Ms Corinne Tan.

With an ECG Counsellor in school, our students can now look forward to even better guidance and direction to explore their strengths and interests, in relation to their aspirations and the changing demands of the workforce. They will be better able to plan and make informed decisions for their education and career pathways in future.

In addition to providing individual and group counselling on career guidance to students, Ms Tan will also be working with our teachers and the school’s ECG Committee to provide ECG resources and to organise activities to create a holistic and meaningful ECG experience for our students. We welcome Ms Tan to our Greendale Family, and look forward to her contributions to the school!

InfoComm Technology (ICT) Manager

The Greendale Family would also like to welcome our ICT Manager, Mr Azlan Shah Rahman.

A former Teacher (AED T&L) with 6 years of experience, Mr Azlan will assist with plans to improve and implement effective ICT systems for Teaching and Learning (T&L) and school administrative system.

We gladly welcome Mr Azlan on board, and look forward to the various ICT works of the School in the pipeline!
