  • On the 25 March 2016 Paul Brock, life member and esteemed friend of the English Teachers Association NSW, passed away.

    Paul Brock was a person who wanted to make a real difference and he achieved this in all areas of his personal and professional life. Paul took the road less travelled, ‘And that has made all the difference’. His story is one of courage and influence that has earned him the respect and admiration of all of us.
