Introducing Sophie Cullinan Year 3/4/5 teacher

My name is Sophie but most people will call me Miss C. This is my fourth year as a teacher and prior to commencing at Sebastopol Primary School I taught Maryborough Education Centre Years 1 - 4.

I love to bake and go camping with my partner Ryan, I have 2 dogs named Teddy and Gunner and my all-time favourite movie is Shrek.

I love to play netball and have been playing since I was 8 years old.

I am so excited for my year at Sebastopol. I’m looking forward to getting to know the community and all the students and staff. I’m very passionate about creating a learning space that encourages a love of leaning in a calm environment.

Bring on a fun, happy and healthy 2022.

I previously taught Early Years classes at the Ballarat Specialist School.

My hobbies are playing netball, camping, going to the beach and catching up with friends.

My daily exercise of choice is taking my puppy Oakley for his walk. 

I look forward to getting to know and learning together with all our amazing staff, students and families. 


Renai – Education Support Officer

Before I started as an ESO at Sebastopol Primary School, I completed a Certificate IV in Education Support and did the professional placement at Sebastopol Primary. I love spending time with my family; we play board games, sport, and multiplayer video games together. I also enjoy watching Disney/Pixar movies; my favourite is The Little Mermaid. My exercise activity of choice is playing backyard sports. I enjoyed supporting the students during my placement last year and am looking forward to continuing to do so as an ESO this year.
