|What are you looking forward to about 2022 at SCAS?||I am looking forward to being part of this wonderful SCAS community and meeting lots of new people. I am also excited to lead my Year 5 class through the year and have lots of fun moments along the way. I want to inspire them to work to the best of their ability and help them to be the best versions of themselves.|
|What was your favourite co-curricular activity as a student?||Definitely Basketball! I lived and breathed Basketball during my years at school.|
|What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend in the Port Macquarie area?||Visiting the beautiful beaches with my husband and children. We’ve also recently taken up stand up paddleboarding which we are really enjoying.|
|What was your latest good read?||I’m currently reading ‘The Farm at Peppertree Crossing’ by Leonie Kelsall.|
|Tell us a fun fact about you||I’m terrified of heights, however, I faced my fear a few years back and went hang-gliding off the top of a mountain in Interlaken in Switzerland. I’m also planning on doing a skydive for my 40th birthday this year.|
