Mentor of the Week



This week’s mentor is Matthew

I was involved with CHASE 2 years ago and have since loved the concept and experience of the program. I want to achieve the sense that I have helped younger people in high school learn more about health topics so that they can make informed decisions as future adults. Having a passion for community health, CHASE offers me the perfect opportunity to involve myself in that passion.”

Matthew is a medicine student in his fourth year of studies. He has the dream of working as a doctor in a hospital one day.

"Just give it a go, you never know what you could achieve"

− Staughton College student Ethan

"The CHASE program has provided a unique opportunity for our students to interact with university students one-on-one, enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of important health topics and have a stronger interaction on a personal level."

− Sarah Maric, Year 11 and 12 VCAL teacher at Copperfield College (from The Voice article)

"The students are enjoying and are engaged in the programs. They have interacted with the presenters each time they have come in and there has been positive engagement from every student in the room. That is a very positive result."

"Being a mentor has put the responsibility on me to practise what I teach rather than just expecting the students to understand."

− Ayesha Maharaj, Master of Public Health student and CHASE mentor
