She provides support by responding to a teacher's particular curriculum needs, modeling for the teacher and for her students high-level challenges and high-level support. Within the grade 6 English class, these challenges enable students to enact and interact while recording and presenting simulated broadcasts of sporting events using multimodal technologies.

The school is a co-educational primary school in the southwestern Sydney region. Ninety-six per cent of students come from homes where English is an additional language or dialect, including some from refugee backgrounds. The student group speaks thirty-nine languages and community language programs are offered in Arabic, Vietnamese and Samoan. The School Plan has a strategy to improve teacher use of ICT for learning. Arising out of this strategy, the teacher has been provided with time to support other teachers in their classrooms use ICT to improve their teaching practice and to make content more engaging for students.
