Program Coordinator At BOP Industries
Hi, I’m Sophie!
I’m a Program Coordinator at BOP Industries with a background in Arts and Teaching. Through my 12 months at BOP, my passion for inspiring and empowering young people to be creative has only grown.
After finishing high school, I went straight into studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts Drama (majoring in Film and Production Content), where my creative and organisational skills thrived as I managed many theatre and film productions. I decided to pursue a career in education and completed my Masters of Teaching (Secondary). From this course, I gained an appreciation for student-centred and real-world learning, which I am privileged to do with BOP.
While working at BOP, I have had the pleasure of working with a myriad of innovative and dedicated students. So far, one of my favourite travel experiences would have to be our school holiday program in Hervey Bay, where students pitched their designs for the city centre to the local council!
My favourite program so far has been our CHAC Designed Spaces Program. I loved working with students to develop their creative and thoughtful designs for particular precincts in their school - specifically on how these spaces are designed for all users and prioritise accessibility.
