Facilitator Profile

At school, Jamie always had to study harder than the average student. He was a visual learner who struggled concentrating when learning from whiteboards and textbooks in the conventional classroom. Jamie found practical and hands-on experiences beyond the classroom environment more engaging and valuable for his learning style. This sparked his dream to create an educational tour company where students could excel in an outdoor environment, learning through quality, hands-on and engaging experiences in practical real-life settings.

Jamie studied a Bachelor of Environmental Science/Marine Biology at the University of Technology Sydney. Following graduation, he went on to work as a National Parks Ranger where he gained extensive knowledge and experience.

Jamie later realised that education was his calling, and began Ranger Jamie Tours in the hope that he could revolutionise the school excursion industry. His goal was to create and tailor school excursion programs to cater for all students. Jamie strived to recruit a dedicated and enthusiastic team who believed in delivering engaging, hands-on, quality experiences for all students. With a focus on environmental science, Australian flora and fauna, Australian history, ecosystems and sustainability, he hopes to inspire the next generation towards an environmentally aware and sustainable future.
