Head of Outdoor Education, East Campus

An adventurous spirit led me to become qualified to work with young and older students for the purpose of personal challenge, team building, skill acquisition and fun! From being a pool lifeguard and activity instructor Calshot Activities Centre in the UK I began travelling the world and held posts on the Isle of Wight, Barbados, Bintan Indonesia and in Nha Trang Vietnam before landing in Singapore. I transitioned to UWCSEA in 2011, after running the after-school dinghy sailing and windsurfing activities through Mana Mana for three years.

Our focus is on progression and personal development for our students, based on the qualities and skills of the learner profile. The level of challenge we present in order to develop confidence and self-awareness in such a wide range of activities and situations is not something I have seen elsewhere.
