Swim Instructor

Lauriston Girls School

2015 - 2018


This role began completely focused on teaching, however after gaining some experience with the school I took on an increasing number of administrative and managerial roles. Across a variety of situations I developed my confidence, ability to improvise and react quickly, and versatility of interaction.

My greatest ‘take-aways’ from this role were:

  • The ability to adapt to interruptions, failures, and unexpected divergences from the plan calmly and confidently.

  • Confidence in my experience/intuition, and the ability to explain and project this.
