Tim Browne from Kungala 2023-2026

Tim is studying a Bachelor of Education at the Southern Cross University Coffs Harbour campus and has been awarded a Lord’s Taverners Scholarship for 4 years.

I feel super blessed and deeply honoured to have been chosen as a recipient of a Lord’s Taverners scholarship through Southern Cross University. In part, the grant has affirmed my decision to, despite my nerves and the competing demands of being a parent and carer, return to study and re-train to be a teacher. I’ve become more and more passionate about developing resilient and confident young people, and in doing so have wanted to make a contribution. Teaching was my choice and the scholarship is an incredible support. Practically the grant has already provided me with equipment I needed for study as well as alleviating some of our family’s financial pressures.   I feel empowered through Lord’s Taverners and their partners’ support and want to offer the same to the students I will eventually teach once I graduate.”
