Teacher rides a moped from Sydney for new job

SCOTS PGC's latest teaching recruit Shane Pisani rode from Sydney to Warwick, on an Aprilla moped, just to "see if could".

Turning down lifts to his new job in Warwick, Mr Pisani braved the highways and arrived in the Rose City with only what he could carry.

"I have travelled over the past four years so I don't own a lot of stuff," he said.

The tiny 125cc vehicle had to be filled up every hour because of its small tank, often topped up by a juice bottle carrying reserves.

"At one point I had trouble turning the key in the ignition," Mr Pisani said.

His wrist had been cramping from the long hours of riding.

Mr Pisani took the scenic route, allowing a few days for the trip up, stopping for a surf in Byron and the Gold Coast.

The business, economics and accounting teacher previously worked at Darwin High School.

He taught a diverse cohort of students in Darwin including some 20-year-old refugees.
