This is my third year at TIS and my first as Middle School Vice Principal. After graduating from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science and a PGCE in Secondary Physical Education 8 years ago, I moved away from Wales and since then I’ve lived and worked in China, Hong Kong and Macau. I was Head of PE at my previous school for 4 years. I have recently started a MSc in Educational Leadership and Management through the University of Portsmouth and I am very much looking forward to applying my knowledge as the Middle School Vice Principal at TIS. I strongly believe that Education should be holistic and focus on improving the “whole” child. Developing resilience and building character are fundamental to a child’s development and participation in co curricular activities and service/volunteer activities can help to grow tomorrow’s leaders.
