I’ve been a member of SAS almost since they started in 1990. I surf only a little but I worked in a couple of Outdoor Centres and climbed Gower’s cliffs lots back then and always identified clean seas and marine litter as important issues. Gaining my degree in Environmental Science and Outdoor Education I continued to have these issues as priorities, and so I’ve always taught and hoped to inspire about looking after our environment.
Fast forward to the present and I’m on the other side of the Bristol Channel as the Headteacher of Georgeham Primary School, just up the road from Putsborough and Croyde. We have a hundred young, inspirational and confident children surrounded by an excellent community and within a fantastic area that offers our children so many valuable opportunities! Our School Council of eight children are the SAS Regional Reps for the school (an SAS ‘first’) and they help to steer us in our curriculum and learning as well as write and lobby on important issues.
