Curricular Coach - Head of Fitness
I have been a qualified fitness instructor for 22 years. I have always been passionate about health and fitness and have encouraged my 3 children to feel the same way. They have all loved sport and I became more and more involved in sport for children
as they have grew up. I could see how important it was to make sport fun so all children would want to be involved. As well as my regular fitness classes I began to coach Hula Hoop clubs in schools. Even the non sporty children loved it and I knew I
wanted to get more involved in motivating children to take up a sport or simply become more active.
