Wayne has great rapport with his students and knows each one of them thoroughly. The development of educative relationships with his students is of primary importance to him. He believes that before a child can grow academically their social, emotional and physical needs must also be met. Wayne has developed many strategies for developing students social skills and this is a particular interest for him. Before joining the ACG School community, Wayne taught at a number of different school in Adelaide, South Australia. He enjoys working with the PYP Framework, particularly its focus of the development of internationally-minded students. Having lived in Indonesia for the past three years, along with his wife Veronica, as well as their two boys, Wayne truly feels Indonesia is his home away from home. Outside of school Wayne enjoys spending time with his family, and experiencing the different tastes of Jakarta’s food culture.
