With easy access to a large number of lakes, rivers and streams located in beautiful scenery, as well as our many thermal pools, we are the perfect outdoor play ground. We have plenty of opportunity for the fun and pleasure that comes with water however I also feel a great responsibility of ensuring water safety.
I have been fortunate to always have had people with special challenges as part of my life, and we were brought up to be inclusive.
I teach and coach swimming and aquatic programmes in any suitable location and am encouraging events with a swim content to be supportive and inclusive.
I look forward to working with Autism Swim sharing and their principles in New Zealand.
