"Home and Away" chronicles the lives, loves, happiness, and heart-breaks of the residents of Summer Bay, a small coastal town in New South Wales, Australia.
Jade Montgomery graduated Uni with the belief that she was about to embark on a career that would change the world. She had always had a passion for teaching, seeing this noble profession as a way to shape the hearts and minds of future generations. But her first posting, at Mangrove River High, soon knocked the idealist out of her.
Ms Montgomery learned the hard way that the only way to deal with difficult students was to wear them down. A tyranny of discipline and order was the only way she could ensure the students knew who was boss. Montgomery climbed the professional ladder quicker than most, and while she’d argue that her appointment to the position of School Principal was based on merit, the truth is that her meteoric rise to power was more likely due to the fact that none of her colleagues lasted more than a year at Mangrove River High.
Montgomery found herself stuck in the two‐bit, rundown excuse for a school where the student’s poor test results and low graduation rate reflected badly on her. And so she resolved to destroy the place that had destroyed her career.
But the burning down of Mangrove River High didn’t get Montgomery what she wanted. Instead of being given the Principal’s position at Summer Bay High, she was shunted to a classroom teaching position under a much less experienced Bianca Scott. The only thing worse than learning that Ms Scott adheres to the philosophy that all teenagers need is a bit of TLC to keep them on track, is the discovery that Bianca is married to an ex‐Mangrove River boy, Heath Braxton.
Montgomery and Heath have never seen eye to eye on anything and aren’t about to start now. Montgomery knows she has to do something, and fast, to ensure she doesn’t stagnate all over again in this ‘touchy feely’ environment… and sets out to make Bianca’s life a living hell in the hopes that she’ll either resign or get fired.
And she will go to any lengths to ensure a positive outcome for herself and through it all, Montgomery firmly believes she is in control of her destiny, but the truth is, she’s a broken, fragile and desperate woman. And that makes her incredibly dangerous should things not go her way…
