I am eager to participate within the schools after school clubs. I would be eager to get involved in any clubs being run at the school.

I believe health and fitness within young and older adults is hugely important not only for physical health but mental health also. I have also worked in care homes as well, which demonstrates that I am a caring person, flexible in my work and work well as part of a team.

I have a good understanding of Special Needs and I am always interested in learning more about children and any other needs they may have in order to promote their education and development.

I am currently enrolled on a Level 7 Special Needs course with St Angela’s College in Sligo. This will commence part-time in September. This will help develop my skills and knowledge to support those with Special needs.

I am available to provide the Summer Programme, and am comfortable doing so either within the family home or out and about, teaching life and social skills within the community.
