Who am I?
I love the colour purple.
I have a dog called Spud.
I go for long runs every day.
I love theatrical performances.
I am the new principal!
Mrs Egan’s favourite colour is purple because she has purple roses in her garden that smell beautiful. She has loved the colour for as long as she can remember.
Every day Mrs Egan goes for a long run and goes to Boot Camp three times a week. She is a keen participant in many fun runs as she loves running.
Over the two week break, Mrs Egan visited UPPS and travelled to Queensland for her auntie’s 80th birthday. She made the most of her trip by taking enjoyable walks and runs along scenic tracks.
After meeting Mrs Egan in person we were privileged to have the opportunity to interview her about her experiences at the school and her endeavours for the future. It is great that Mrs Egan has picked up quite a few names so far. At the time of writing, Mrs Egan remembers Grade 6 students Tayla-Jade, Bailey, Ella, Kaitlyn and from younger year levels, Campbell, Grace and Ned.
During our interview with Mrs Egan, she stated that on the holidays she was walking around the school and doing a bit of sightseeing when she realised that she had gotten herself lost near the 5/6 building and couldn’t find her way back to the office.
We asked what her favourite thing about the school is so far and her response was “Definitely the students, due to their friendly and welcoming attitude towards myself.”
Mrs Egan has been teaching for a long time and the first thing she said was that the students at the school come first. She carried on by saying that it is important to make decisions based on the kids. Mrs Egan is looking forward to maintaining a nice community and spending quality time with everybody.
Mrs Egan’s old school is a small school like ours, however there is a difference in the amount of students. There aren’t many other differences. The surroundings are quite similar and there are many lovely students.
In the future Mrs Egan is looking forward to getting to know everybody, sharing success with the community, supporting students and most importantly having fun!
Mrs Egan told us that she would not like to make any changes to the school for the time being because she thinks it is good to see how the school runs and how the students and staff work.
Mrs Egan is a very passionate principal and always keeps a positive perspective on everything. We look forward to spending more time with her and seeing her grand plans for the future!
GOOD LUCK MRS EGAN!
