Head of Physical Education
I am so excited to have joined GRDS as Head of PE this academic year and I have been teaching for 9 years, specifically within sports and exercise! I am originally from West London and I have lived in Dubai for seven years. PE is my absolute passion inside and outside of the classroom and I believe that a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle enhances positive minds and bodies supporting us with becoming better thinkers and doers. Sport teaches us to become leaders, team players and critical thinkers. Attributes I believe everyone should have the opportunity to be exposed to and in turn developing us all to become resilient lifelong learners.
I have been fortunate enough to teach across all key stages from FS all the way through to IB. I have led a number of PE teams both in Dubai and the UK and I have relished in developing both the sports curriculum and opportunities for all students to succeed within a wide range of sports and events. I am so excited to work alongside all the amazing students, families and staff at GRDS and go on what I am sure will be a journey of learning and success on and off the sports field!
At RDS we strive to ensure all pupils are leading active healthy lifestyles, as well as being as happy as they can be! Our wonderful sports days and swimming galas embrace important values such as determination, team work, and sportsmanship whilst engaging parents, teachers and students through challenging and fun experiences. A definite highlight has to be seeing our students lead and take part in special events across the school such as Assemblies, Sports Day, Swimming Gala Week, International Day, Production, National Day, Flag Day and Happiness week. We have a wonderful team of Student Leaders who are working very hard to be role models and lead the way at RDS!
