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.

Hello my name is Meg and I have been swim teaching for almost three years. I really enjoy working with children and I find it really rewarding watching them progress with the swimming technique and becoming more confident in the water.

motorbiking, wakeboarding, and also snowboarding. I am also hoping to join the NZ police force in the next few years.
