This year, we welcome Neroli Cousins to our Primary and Music faculty. Neroli, who may be a familiar face around the playground, has been working as a casual teacher at SCAS since 2021 and has taught every subject and year group. Prior to her career in education, Neroli taught dance and managed a successful dance studio in Melbourne. After completing a Masters in Teaching, Neroli taught at Epping Primary School in Victoria as a Performing Arts Specialist for five years before moving to Port Macquarie.
The SCAS Media team met up with Neroli to learn more.
|What are you looking forward to about 2023 at SCAS?
|I am looking forward to teaching music and the performing arts and also getting into the grade 5 classroom with 5W. The most exciting thing is being able to get to know the students better and having consistency after being casual for so long.
|What was your favourite co-curricular activity as a student?
|Dance, dance, dance! And singing and of course, being onstage and doing all of those things.
|What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend?
|Go on adventures with my family.
|What was your latest good read?
|I read two novels during these holidays, which is a sign of a good holiday! My favourite, could not put down was: The Lost Flowers of Agnes Heart by Holly Ringland
|Tell us a fun fact about you
|I don’t own a TV! Our piano takes pride of place in our living room.
