Head of Year 9

"Hello, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Head Extra and Enriching Activities. My teaching career started in my home country of Wales, where I completed my PGCE in Physical Education at Cardiff Metropolitan University. I had taught in two schools in Wales, before moving over to Dubai to join this great school. This will be my Fourth year at GEMS Founders School and my first year as head of Extra and Enriching Activities. 

Some of my fondest memories in school were playing in after school teams or being a part of school events. I have grown up always being involved around sport. Since a young age I have seen the benefit of being a part of a team and a community. Being part of a team helps build many qualities a person should have. These include; respect for others, confidence, sociability as well as many others and I’m hoping to develop these qualities through what we can offer to our pupils."
