Current Coach and Old Girl Attacking her Goals
The School community is proud to acknowledge the achievements of Amy Parmenter. Amy is an Old Girl (Class of 2015 and 2015 Head Girl) and a current SCEGGS Netball and Cross-country coach. As a member of Giants Super Netball, Sydney’s premier Australian league team in the Suncorp Super Netball competition, Amy was voted MVP in her most recent match. Amy balances her sporting and coaching commitments while studying a double university degree in Law and Public Communications. Amy has caught the attention of the sporting world and we encourage you to read this SMH article (if you haven’t already!) which also details Amy’s strength of character off the court as well.
