Become a Physie teacher they said, it will be fun they said… Well, they were right, but it provides us with soooooooo much more!!
We often refer to our club members as our physie family. Why? Maybe because it is the only way to describe the people who have chosen to spend their nights and weekends with us. If we have some big news, we share it with our physie family. Having a wedding or birthday? Make sure you save at least one table for your physie family, you know we will be there. It is this big net of support and love that we feel when we are part of a team that supports every member as if they are their own out there on that stage.
As your teacher, we could not be prouder. We see your commitment every week, we see you struggle with the syllabus one week and then get it the next, that’s inspiring.
Last weekend we held our annual Teachers Seminar. A weekend where all EP teachers come together, hold our AGM, enjoy each other's company and lay the final touches to your physie. All weekend, yep, we do physie all weekend. We asked our teachers the all important question, why teach physie? Here are just some of their responses.
Cheryl Waterlander - Port Macquarie Club
My club is not huge, never has been, but I love my Physie Family.
Watching girls and ladies face the challenge, and become a competent physie person gives my heart and soul a lovely warm glow.
The challenges faced and overcome makes my soul happy. I have physie friends who attended my wedding 49 years ago.
I have many adopted physie daughters, who are now making me an adopted physie grandmother. My daughter and granddaughters love the sport. I LOVE EP PHYSIE
Debbie West - Fairfield City & Baulkham Hills Clubs
With a very controlled and deliberate briefness, on why I honestly just love teaching physie…
After mum introduced me to physie as a 5 year old, my genetic nature took hold giving me a warm feeling of worth when I was able to help someone in my class from quite a young age.
That desire to help led to a desire to then support my peers, teacher and club in many ways as I grew also. Teaching, in many facets, makes me truly happy and self satisfied. It’s that simple. To help so many others also have happier, healthier and worthwhile lives continues to give me those warm and fuzzy feels …with goosebumps and watery eyes as extras!!
Self satisfaction is my mantra - it’s a great feeling.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves ladies.
