A desire to share her passion for an active and healthy lifestyle with youth, led Simone Nalder to study Health and Physical Education.
Bachelor of Applied Science (Health and Physical Education)
RMIT's Health and Physical Education program included a teaching placement in every semester of the degree. I got to experience the primary, secondary, independent and government sectors of education.
I grew up playing sport and always had a very healthy and active lifestyle and wanted to share this passion with the youth of today.
RMIT’s Health and Physical Education program included a teaching placement in every semester of the degree. Placements varied in length and took place in a wide range of schools. I got to experience the primary, secondary, independent and government sectors of education.
I loved being able to get out into Schools and put everything we were learning straight into practice. I also really enjoyed that the program included some exercise science units such as Exercise Physiology and Sports Nutrition.
I was honoured to receive the Year Three Most Outstanding academic award and lucky enough to receive both the Ernest William Capp Scholarship and the George Alexander Foundation Scholarship during my time at RMIT.
I met some amazing people throughout my program and took part in RMIT’s Uni games mixed netball teams which was a great way to make new friends and be a part of the RMIT Redbacks!
Being equipped with the skills and knowledge I gained throughout my degree made me feel very confident when entering the workplace. Currently, I’m a Health and Physical Education at Our Lady of Mercy College, the school has a very strong sporting culture which I enjoy.
In the future I would love to teach VCE PE and Health and take on positions of leadership. I also hope to complete further study and become an educator in the tertiary sector.
