Our Teachers

Our teachers are focused on sharing the Polish language, our rich history, culture and traditions with students so that they can continue to strengthen the multicultural diversity and foundation of Australian society.

Our experienced teachers specialise in educating children and adults from both non-Polish backgrounds as well as those with foundations of Polish language skills already developed.

Marysia has been a teacher for over 30 years and her passions include organising camps and events for the Polish youth in Australia and having a strong “can do” attitude which she has always aimed to instil in her students and colleagues.

 Żaneta Branch


Żaneta joined the Polish Saturday School in Ashfield at the start of 2017 after relocating from Brisbane, where she taught at the Brisbane Polish School. She completed her masters degree in polish studies from the University in Warsaw in 2007 and is a proud mother of two. As a mum of two bilingual kids Żaneta understands first hand the challenges that lay ahead of bilingual and multilingual children, as well as for their parents and carers. Żaneta loves to extend her passion for the polish language and the polish culture to her students, and education through fun and creative activities are Żaneta’s most valued tools in doing this. In her free time Żaneta loves to cook, exercise, write her blog about polish life in Australia, read, travel and enjoy simple things such as a good cup of coffee.
