Everyone, please meet Sere [She-ray], our talented Kids and Creche support worker. Sere works hard in the Beacon Office every Friday ensuring that there are enough craft and teaching supplies for all the small Beaconites.
Q. When did you first join Beacon?
Sere: I joined Beacon in October 2009. Gidge and Garth were my first small group leaders at Beacon.
Q. What is the best thing about working with children?
Sere: There are so many good things about working with children, it’s hard to choose just one! But I guess it’s the quirky things they say. When you’re having a bit of an off day and then they say something really funny or something that just makes you think. That’s really nice.
Q. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
Sere: Definitely a night owl.
Q. What’s your pet peeve?
Sere: The main one is when people lick their plate or lick the lid of yoghurt pots. I have to look away when people do it!
Q. When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?
Sere: Watch comedy! At the moment, my favourite show is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, it always cheers me up.
Q. What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?
Sere: My mum was reading an article about food the other day which mentioned that soy and goji berries are some of the worst ‘superfoods’ you can eat… but I can’t remember why. Also wheatgrass is meant to be really bad for you. Something to do with the chlorophyll content.
Q. What do you like to do on a rainy day?
Sere: I like to sew or be creative. I write stories, I have a story in the making that I’ve been writing for the best part of 15 years! But when I have a day when I’m not going anywhere I love to add to the story. I also love to sing and chat with my Mum because we get on really well.
