Our People At New Plymouth

Christina Davis

I began Swim Teaching with Fulton Swim School - in 2015 and have taught hundreds of brilliant children from babies through to squad levels

I have grown up doing just about every water sport you can think of. However my favorite was surf life saving where I spent seasons Life Guarding, teaching IRB drivers and teaching Rookie Lifeguards.

So working for a Swim School came very naturally to me with a Water Safety and Surf background.
I have a true passion for teaching and helping families become safe and

enjoy the water while learning the life skill of swimming.

I am now happy call Fulton Swim School - New Plymouth my new home.

Brooke van Eijk

I grew up in a world of water; pool swimming and surf lifesaving. When I stopped competing I started teaching. I have been teaching learn to swim for over 15 years to all different ages and abilities. I am a primary school teacher but just love being in the water teaching people the awesomely fun and life saving skill of being able to swim. My greatest achievements would be my Bachelor of Teaching and 2018 NZSCTA Swim Teacher of the Year award. Outside of the pool I spend lots of time with my wonderful husband and children (aged 10 and 6) and help out on the dairy farm.
