Ruth Prendergast

Year 5R Class Teacher and Year 5 Curriculum Leader

Currently teaching Year 2, I joined the Park Lane community in 2010. Previous to this I travelled and taught in South East Asia.
I am particularly keen that the children I teach should try their best and not be afraid to make mistakes, as we often learn so much from getting things wrong or half-right. I consider Park Lane a school, which encourages creative thinking and independent learners.
I feel very privileged to work with children from different countries and cultures and find Park Lane’s pupils a pleasure and a joy to work with.
My hobbies and interests include hiking as well as sketching, drawing and painting.
