Thomas is the name, PE is the game. I am in my 4th year of PE teaching at ANI and loving my time at the school. The teachers are supportive. The students are engaged, energetic and passionate and the facilities are great.

I am very passionate about a number of sports. When not at school, I can be found around the pool where I both play and coach Waterpolo, at the beach learning to surf, in a shady hammock reading a book or at the park kicking a ball around.

Having worked as a personal trainer for a few years prior to teaching, I used that as a foot in the door to New Zealand Waterpolo where I both played and currently a coach at the National level. Sport has taken me all over the world including Singapore, Hong Kong, USA, Kuwait, Australia.

My goals for 2022 include continuing my French language learning, to train for and compete in the Auckland Marathon in 2023 and to read 15 books in 2022.
