Suzanne Plume was nominated by an Emanuel School parent, who was very impressed with the support that her children have been given. “Suzanne Plume helps countless children to realise their potential,” said the parent, who wishes to remain anonymous. “She has provided multiple extension opportunities for my two children, advocating for their needs – whether academic, social or emotional. Most importantly she does the most outstanding job of educating parents, as well as supporting them in understanding their child’s unique needs and providing the necessary resources, whether reading material or activities. Her support has been invaluable in enabling me to be a better and more understanding mother to my cognitively gifted and emotionally challenging children.”

Emanuel School Principal, Anne Hastings, said, “The SENG Honor Roll recognises teachers who have had a significant impact on the life of gifted students or young adults. Being nominated by a parent is high praise indeed and we are proud to have Suzanne Plume as an integral member of our teaching staff.”

Suzanne Plume was thrilled to be nominated. “I see the award as a reminder of the parents’ invaluable support of me and my role at the School.  It’s both a privilege and a delight to work with our parents and with the committed team of educational experts here at Emanuel, in order to facilitate our students’ cognitive, social and emotional development and to see them thriving and flourishing.”
