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 you||I 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….|
