I have been a Maths teacher since 1980 at the Wavell School, Horndean School and presently at Oaklands Catholic School.
I like all sorts of music and currently sing in the church choir, Renaissance Choir, Phoenix Singers, Opera Comique, and also Havant Light Opera (when work commitments allow). I play the oboe for musical groups/events at school. I help with our annual musical productions at school enjoying the role of stage manager in recent years,
I swim every morning and do yoga once a week in an attempt to keep fit, calm and hopefully reasonably supple.
I love camping, although I cheat a bit nowadays being in a motorcaravan.
I like to be on the water and have had boating holidays on the Thames, canals and inland waterways for almost 50 years. I hope to do some extended periods of boating when I retire.
I am a maths teacher at Oakland’s Catholic School.

Along with swimming, yoga, scrabble, Sudoku and crosswords.
