Our people at Upper Hutt

Alice - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Hi! I’m Alice and I’ve been teaching at Fulton Upper Hutt since 2017. I’ve loved the water my whole life - my Mum always said I could swim before I could walk. 

I grew up down the road in Lower Hutt so am native to the Hutt Valley. Outside teaching I also have a full time job supporting builders in NZ, and am working towards finishing my degree in Early Childhood Education. 

Angus - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Hey, My name is Angus, I was born in Upper Hutt and recently returned after two years in Christchurch at the University of Canterbury. I’ve been swimming all my life and learnt to swim at the Fulton Upper Hutt pool.

Outside of work I’m currently in my third year of Uni. I study a Computer Science / Geography degree at Vic. My focus is Geographic Information Systems and remote sensing as well as database management systems.

My hobbies outside of work are hanging out with mates and exercising, you’ll probably catch me in the gym or running in the mountains with my brother.

Looking forward to seeing you round.

Brooke - Fulton Swim School Teacher


My name's Brooke. I've lived in Upper Hutt my whole life so I've grown accustomed to a balanced lifestyle of being firm and laid back which I find is handy when being a swim teacher.

If I'm not in the water, you can probably find me doing something related to movies, music, books, food, sports, or hanging out with friends.

I'm a big fan of swimming lessons being both productive and enjoyable, and believe that the best way to get 100% out of our swimmers is through positive connections and routine practice.

Looking forward to trying to make lessons as worthwhile as possible!

Hi, I'm Kath and I have been a swim teacher since 2008. I absolutely love what I do, it is one of the most rewarding things ever.

I have a diploma in Child Psychology and an Early Childhood Swimming qualification and find it very useful in my work. I have lived in Upper Hutt since 2007 and love to read, travel and listen to music.

Can't wait to see you all.

Liam - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Hey I’m Liam.

I really enjoy swimming and have taken lessons since I was little with Fulton that have helped me in a lot of ways. In my spare time I enjoy gaming online, spending time with family and mates and playing the trombone. I wanted to become a swimming teacher so I could share my interest with kids as well as helping them improve their swim skills and safety in the water.

Nicole - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Hey everyone, I'm Nicole.

I was born in Tauranga, but I have grown up in Upper Hutt most of my life. I have spent time in the UK and traveling Europe. I have always loved swim teaching and love it here at Fulton.

I enjoy art, reading and love spending outdoors with my friends and family. I have grown up with a big family with over twenty cousins. We have all been together as we have gotten older spending our lives in and around the water, so I am most definitely a water baby.

Stanley - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Hi, I'm Stanley and I do my best to be firm, fair and fun in my teaching. I am also a youth worker at Maidstone Intermediate and have done this for over three years. I have plenty of experience in working with young people and find this to give me useful skills when it comes to teaching swimming.

I spend most of my free time with friends or trying to catch up on my reading.

If you have any questions about your child's progress, I will do my best to answer them all.

Blessings to all.

In my free time I like to plays sports, go for tramps, and read a good book. I love working with young people and am involved in many groups which work with children aged 3-5 and girls in years 5-8. I love to help each person learn something new and have fun while doing it. I am super excited to be working here at Fulton Swim School helping to teach fundamental water safety skills and perfect their swimming techniques.

Siany - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Kia Ora, I’m Siany I started teaching here at Fulton Swim School in 2021 and have enjoyed seeing all the kids achieve their goals and move up levels.  I have a big family but I am one of the oldest, so I have grown up looking after the younger children, which is why I’ve always wanted to work with kids. 
In my spare time I love being in the water whether it be at a pool, lake or in the ocean, so being able to work in the water is the best!  I also enjoy spending time with friends and family when ever I can.

Violet - Fulton Swim School Teacher


Hello my name is Violet, I am 32 years old and have been working as a swimming instructor since 2017.
Back in Mexico I was an English teacher and when I moved to New Zealand I started my swimming instructor career, which was "teaching swimmers with disabilities " one of the main courses that defined my teaching style.
I enjoy working with children and my favorite stroke is breaststroke as it feels the most natural for my body and the stroke that allows me better to enjoy feeling movement through water.
Out of teaching I enjoy performing arts, live events and any place with Mexican food.
