  • About the donor

    Jennifer Duggan Leaper

    At Primary School, Jenny decided she wanted to be a teacher so she 'could write on the chalk board'.  As a recipient of a Commonwealth Scholarship in 1967 she embarked on a Bachelor of Arts and completed a Diploma of Education in 1970. Her teaching  career includes: Victorian state and private schools, both city and country; secondary schools in  Perth; a Junior High School in North Carolina, USA; a Boarding School in Bournemouth, UK.
    Throughout her career Jenny was inspired by her students and fellow teachers and developed a particular energy for teaching young adolescents. She wants to share her passion with those who will have a major positive influence on the lives of others - through education of the whole person and the encouragement of life-long learning.

What are the benefits?

$10,000 per year for the duration of the Master of Teaching.
