My name is Fabienne. Before you ask, yes I am French. Our family bought a property on the island nine years ago and we finally made it here in January now that our children are old enough to be at school. I am from a rural background and love that natural aspect of Scotland Island. My work revolves around hydrogeology or groundwater resources management if you prefer. When I get some time, I love baking, cooking and throwing pots and bowls (ceramics).
Anne has lived on the island for nine years with her husband and daughter, who is now away at university. Before moving back to Australia she lived in the Pacific and Asia, working as a primary school and TESOL teacher. She now does private tutoring, and loves gardening, particularly with native plants.
In March 2017, I moved to the island with my husband and three kids – undoubtedly the best move ever! I grew up in Switzerland and New Zealand and have moved between the two numerous times. After teaching English and German as a Second Language for many years, I now freelance as an editor and translator. I enjoy unsuccessfully circumnavigating cultural faux pas, baking inedible cakes and falling asleep before the opening credits of a film. As a SIRA member, I want to contribute to island life by bringing the newbie-but-eager-to-learn, family-with-smallish-children perspective to this merry round of island residents.

I moved with my family to the island five years ago and we love the beauty of Pittwater as well as this amazing community, including the Island Kindy which has been fabulous for our little munchkin. I am a journalist, researcher and health communications professional, originally from New Caledonia.
Colin is a retired retail executive. For the last 15 years he has owned and managed with his wife Rosemary, the Scotland Island Lodge Guest House.
I am a long-term resident of the Northern Beaches, moved to Scotland Island in 2016 with my partner, Natalie and my three kids.
The best move since I moved to Australia from Ireland on a tall ship in 1988.
A photographer for over 25 years, with a studio in Mona Vale, servicing the corporate market in photography and video production, Australia-wide.
Have a love for the ocean, nature, good food and red wine.
I am a long time single mum whose 23 yr old daughter (Nadia) no longer lives at home, but rather prefers to live her busy life based in Balmain. Nadia does love to visit at every opportunity, and has met many of my neighbours and friends.
I’ve been on the Island now just over three years and expect to live out my days here. It is certainly my home.
I am also a primary school teacher with a passion for Public Education and a number of other social justice issues. You’ll recognise me by my badge laden backpack!
Having my first plot of actual land again since I was a child I have discovered that I rather love to garden! I also consider myself a half decent cook and love to break bread with family and friends as often as possible.
It is my honour and my privilege to serve the community on the SIRA Committee
