Tamsyn Bush

NZSCTA Rookie Swim Teacher of the Year 2016

Hiya, I started swimming with Fulton Swim School when I was 11, after moving to Franklin from the Coromandel. Having grown up at the beach I spent most of my childhood in the water and have always loved swimming! I was part of surf lifesaving for 5 years and was a rookie lifeguard for the last 2 years. I still have a strong passion for swimming and like to get into a pool and swim whenever I can. I am so proud to be able to pass my passion onto the children I teach and to watch them grow as competent swimmers.

I love the outdoors and spending time with my son.

Riley Hunter

Hey, my name is Riley.

I've been swimming since I was two years old and have had 12 years of swimming training. I have been swimming competitively the majority of my school years. I’m also a qualified PADI rescue diver and have been diving since I was 12, so swimming and being in the water is definitely a passion of mine.

I became a swim instructor because I know how important it is to be able to swim and everybody should have the opportunity to be able to learn how to swim. Also because of my passion for swimming and being in the water I very much enjoy passing on my swimming experience and my passion for it.
