Introducing our wonderful & dedicated school staff including our teachers, principals and education support staff. Each week we will add a new staff member to this page.

Jane Zaal – VCE Coordinator 


Introducing Jane Zaal our VCE Coordinator at the Western Campus. Ms. Zaal looks after the programs and concerns for all VCE students. Her job entails working with students to ensure that they have a program in place that will assist them to do their very best in their studies.

Jane has been at Rowville Secondary College since 2004 and her main subject that she teaches is English. Jane’s favourite moment in the classroom is when a student achieves their very best – that moment when the student ‘gets it.’  “It’s a great feeling to watch them learn and understand what you are teaching them. RSC is a school with so many opportunities for staff, but especially students.  I love working at the college because it is an ever-changing school and we’re always moving forward with our teaching and challenging students minds, and watching them learn is great.”

“I am looking forward to my new role as VCE Coordinator and assisting students to do their very best while at school. My favourite part of the day is the Learning Mentor time, I have a fabulous group of students who enjoy the time, building relationships and assisting each other to learn.”
