Coming to Marden
Upon completion of my SACE in 2001 I had a change of heart as to my preferred career path. To qualify for application for the Bachelor of Exercise Science (Human Movement) at UniSA I required another science subject. Thus I enrolled in Biology at Marden Senior College.
Experience at Marden Senior College
I only spent one year studying one subject at Marden, however I only have fond memories. Marden allowed me the freedom to work full time while studying; the staff, while effectively still our “teachers” afforded the students a different style of student-teacher relationship – one of mutual respect, which is not often seen within the usual schooling realm. This enabled students the ability to be responsible for their own learning and develop into mature young adults. I would highly recommend Marden Senior College as a stepping stone to achieving your future goals.
Achievements to date, today and the future
From Marden I was accepted into the Bachelor of Exercise Science (Human Movement) at UniSA. I proceeded to complete the first two years of this degree prior to transferring into the Bachelor of Physiotherapy at LaTrobe University in Melbourne, from which I graduated in 2008.
I am now moving into my eighth year working as a physiotherapist. During this time I have had numerous roles and clinical experiences, however I am currently employed in private practice, treating and rehabilitating musculo-skeletal conditions with a combination of manual and exercise based therapy.
