"Since starting at John Paul College in 2010 I have been involved with many SIS sporting teams as a coach and have also been involved with our school sport carnivals held each year.
From my experience and interest in sports I know how valuable living a physically active life is and I feel that participation in regular sporting or recreational activities can help develop many aspects of our students’ development including self-esteem, confidence, resilience, team work and leadership.
