Welcome Nigel Cockington, our Primary Director of Wellbeing

This year we welcome Nigel Cockington to our Leadership team as our new Primary Director of Wellbeing. Nigel joins SCAS with a wealth of experience having worked across 3 decades and in 3 different states. Most recently, Nigel spent fourteen years as the Head of the Junior School at Blue Mountains Grammar School.

The Media team sat down with Nigel in early Term 1 to find out a little more about him.

What are you looking forward to about 2022 at SCAS?I am looking forward to being part of a Leadership team of a large and growing co-ed independent school whose ethos very much matches mine and the bulk of my experience in independent schools.
What was your favourite co-curricular activity as a student? Being a cast member of the school productions every year since Year 7. I also loved cricket, basketball and outdoor ed.
What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend in the Port Macquarie area?So far it’s looking at the beautiful houses or properties that I would love to buy. Either that or sitting at the beach not doing anything at all in particular.
What was your latest good read?Richard Foiler’s, The Golden Maze – This is a great book tracing the history of Prague (one of my favourite European cities) from the earliest Bohemians, through the Hapsburg emperors, WW2, the communist era and finally freedom.
Tell us a fun fact about youI once got lost, as a teacher leading students, on an expedition up the Murray River. They had to send Search and Rescue for us. Most embarrassing….
