Peta Medcalf

Head of Year 6, Class Teacher

After completing my studies and working as a Secondary Music teacher, I moved to Dublin, and then London, where my love of Primary teaching blossomed. In West London, I worked in a wonderful primary school where I became passionate about project based learning. I eventually felt inspired to experience teaching in a new part of the world. An adventure to South East Asia called and I was delighted to join a fantastic school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In those 3+ years I have accepted many new challenges that have included leading Year 4 & 5 as a Head of Year, working with a Literacy Lead team to help improve reading across the school and coordinating the music program in Early Years. When considering my move to BISH, I was most excited about joining a school that celebrates creativity and making learning meaningful and authentic.

Originally from Sydney Australia, I grew up with a love of outdoor adventures, horses and music. In school, I was fortunate enough to go to a performing arts Secondary school and later completed my Bachelor of Music, majoring in classical flute performance. Alongside my love of music, my passion for travel continues to grow. I have lived in Ireland, the UK and Malaysia and have visited and explored countless countries. I can't wait to see more of the USA and although I don't quite have enough room for a horse, I would love to adopt a pet dog.
