Shalini Shah

Principal, Adelaide

I am passionate about education within the formative years and can see how important these years are in development of curious, creative, independent and self-determined learners of the future. I can see the important contribution that design, layout and space of the physical environment and most importantly its connection to the natural environment has on the growth, learning and wellbeing not only of the child but also of the teacher.
