COOMEALLA High School is one of the friendliest and welcoming schools that new principal Jo Scott has worked in.
After an 11-year stint as deputy principal at Cessnock High School in the Hunter Valley, Jo is quickly getting to know the people and the place.
And starting the school year in the middle of a heatwave wasn’t such a shock to her, as she has worked in other hot areas such as Moree and Narrabri.
“From childhood I always wanted to be a teacher, practising on my younger brother’s mates,” Jo said.
“I was born in Newcastle and moved to Sydney when Dad was transferred in his employment before I started school.
“I went to primary school in Turramurra on Sydney’s North Shore.”
Jo went to university at Hawkesbury Agricultural College and then Newcastle University where she mainly studied science-related subjects, her favourite being biochemistry.
