This year we welcome Amy Bibby to our staff as our new Stage 3 Coordinator and Year 6 teacher. Amy joins us from Newcastle, where she was a teacher at Newcastle Grammar School.
The Media Team sat down with Amy at the start of Term 1 to learn a little more about her.
|What are you looking forward to about 2022 at SCAS?||Learning and growing, both personally and professionally. The staff are amazing and the depth of their knowledge and experience is truly inspiring. Also, I am super excited to get to know the amazing learners in Years 5 and 6, as their thinking and persistence has blown me away so far.|
|What was your favourite co-curricular activity as a student?||I enjoyed both music and sport growing up. I played netball and tennis as well as playing trumpet in a marching band.|
|What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend in the Port Macquarie area?||I am spending my weekends in Newcastle to spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy swimming laps in the ocean baths back in Newcastle on the weekends. Although I have heard that Port Macquarie may one day build their own ocean pool! More recently, I created special memories with my Grandparents in Laurieton and am looking forward to revisiting the Camden Haven area in the coming months.|
|What was your latest good read?||A book recommended to me by Sarah Jones – The Writing Revolution by Judith C. Hochman and Natalie Wexler. You know a book is a worthwhile read when you can turn to any page and become engrossed!|
|Tell us a fun fact about you||Possibly unexpected but I love boxing! Before moving to Port Macquarie, I had been training at the same boxing gym in Newcastle for about 16 years! I have never stepped into the ring for a bout personally, but last year I obtained my boxing trainer qualification. It’s a sport where mindset is everything!|
