What Makes me want to come to work?

“The standard you walk past, is the standard you accept”.  When I first heard that quote attributed to David Hurley – former Governor of NSW, I realised this is that sentiment that gets me out of bed to go to work.

The standard for many young people’s access to education is unacceptable.

The standard of the education system in Australia is outdated and not serving its need.

I hope to change the standard in a small way.

Program Co-ordinator Wangaratta Digital Hub

Responsible For: 

  • Program Co-ordination at Wangaratta Digital Hub


Amanda’s career began in education, working as a teacher for almost 20 years in Wangaratta. She then moved into youth and community development in 2013 at Benalla Rural City Council, focusing on community wide strategies to address identified local issues.


Amanda brings this experience plus a long held interest in technology to the role of coordinating the Wangaratta Digital Hub.

I am excited by this role because each day I am able to assist community members to overcome barriers they face in relation to their use of technology.
