NZSCTA Rookie Swim Teacher of the Year 2016
Hello, I am Kallum. I was born and raised in the Hutt. I am the Team Leader for Fulton Swim School Upper Hutt and I have been teaching and working at a swimming pool for over seven years.
Most of my time away from work is spent on my friends, playing sports, going on walks and gaming. I studied at Victoria University of Wellington to earn a Degree in Science majoring in Ecology and Biodiversity.
I swam competitively for nine years and have competed for Wellington in the national swim champs gaining medals in multiple events. My favorite stroke is a tie between butterfly and backstroke.
I cannot wait to see everyone at the pool!
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.
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 everyone, I’m Delwyn. I have been teaching at Fulton’s since October 2016. I am a mother of 2 adult boys and at times to the staff at Fulton Upper Hutt!
I am a Girls’ Brigade Leader and also enjoy pottering in my garden, reading and travelling.
I love teaching swimming and get a real thrill when a student achieves their goals.
Hey there! I'm Gabby.
I am currently a swim teacher here at Fulton. I really enjoy teaching, as I love seeing people progress and reach their goals. The reason I originally wanted to be a swim teacher is because, learning to swim is such an important skill and I want to be that person to help others to reach their full potential. I want to do this by making my lessons efficient whilst keeping them a fun as possible.
With my spare time i like to spend it with my friends and family doing whatever we can think of.
I have been teaching swimming since my final year of school and I love it. The biggest thing I have found I like about teaching is that the kid always brighten my day with there stories and smiles.
See you at swimming.

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.
I have 3 children of my own and have always loved the water, so to be able to work in the pool is the best!
Can't wait to see you all.
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.
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.
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.
Hey, my name is Harry. I was born in England but have grown up in Upper Hutt so definitely consider myself a local now.
I've been swimming for as long as I can remember, entering the pool before I could even walk, then took that love of the water into competitive swimming and now as a swim instructor.
I am currently studding at the New Zealand Institute of Sport in Health, recreation and coaching, so not only do I have coaching experience from being a swim instructor but also furthering my education at a degree level.
In my spare time you can find me on long drives to unexplored places with my friends, at the beach or river, or at the gym.
I look forward to meeting you all. See you at the pool!!
