Our People At Upper Hutt

Kallum Sullivan

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!

Brooke Young

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!

Gabrielle Scherrer

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.

Liam Johns

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 Hunter

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.

Zara Smith

Hey everyone, my name is Zara.

I was born and raised in Upper Hutt. I'm a mother to a 3 year old and before I started working for Fulton, I was a lifeguard in the South Wairapa.

With this job and my previous job, I learnt the importance of water safety and enjoyed working in and around the water. I see it as a very important skill and I am an advocate for all people learning swimming. My lessons are based of having fun and learning lots. I strive to be able to teach all kids the technique and ability to swim and survive.
