Head of Campus – Greetings from Wyndham

My name is Jennifer Trodden and I am the Head of Campus at the new Wyndham Christian College. I am very excited about the growth that we are experiencing and I look forward to getting to know many of the new families joining our College. Prior to joining the Heatherton-Wyndham team, I have spent sixteen years working in Christian education. My leadership positions have included: Head of Sport, Head of the Health & Physical Education Faculty, Year Level Coordinator and Secondary Learning Coach. My specialty area has been teaching VCE Health & Human Development alongside other Physical Education subjects.

I have a love for learning and have enjoyed studying a Masters of Education and an Executive Ready Leadership program in 2018. I am also passionate about encouraging both emerging and experienced leaders and founded a professional network in 2017 for Women in Educational Leadership. We meet together regularly to exchange knowledge and skills and support one another.

Throughout my teaching career my husband and I have actively served within the church. We were the Senior Pastors of Hope Generation Church for four years. During this time I enjoyed serving in the worship team as a vocalist, managing Sunday services and helping to establish and support a dynamic youth group. The most rewarding part of leading a church was seeing young people come to Christ and connecting with families who have become lifelong friends.

At the age of 22 I married a gorgeous man from Scotland, we now have two daughters, one in Primary and one in Secondary. I have a love for animals, and we have two Cavoodle puppies called Chewy and Pickle. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, going out for dinner, shopping, hiking, water and snow skiing.
