1
Which sporting event in history would you like to have been at?

The 1988 Wimbledon women’s final – Steffi Graf beat Martina Navratilova to win her first Wimbledon title, having lost to her the year before. Both women are high on my list of idols – I even shed a tear when I saw Steffi walk out on centre court for the 2000 champions parade at Wimbledon. Being 2 rows from the front as she walked straight past – all too much for a 13-year-old.

2
Name three people you would like to invite round to dinner? 

Tough one as there are so many. Leonardo DiCaprio – well firstly ‘HOT’, secondly not a bad actor and thirdly he does so much for charities and raising awareness for global warming - he is a legend. David Walliams or Miranda – both of them I feel would lighten any mood & are both hilarious and Emmeline Pankhurst – just to say thanks !! Not sure us women would be running around like we do if it wasn’t for her.

Which book has inspired you most in the past year?

Ant Middleton – ‘First Man In.’ I'm not a big reader however I picked this up at the airport before flying to NZ. I was hooked from the first page and finished it by the time I landed in Auckland. It showed him in a completely different light to the person we see on the TV. It proves that even someone who has been through the mill a bit and not necessarily always on the right side of the law can achieve anything if you work hard and focus on the key things. It was just a really good read!! 
 
4
What favourite item you have bought or been given in the last six months?

Well I thought I would finally get on the fitness watch band wagon, so probably My Fitbit – I’m obsessed with it! Especially when it shouts at me to MOVE!
 
5
Describe your perfect day if time, money or travel was not an issue?

Wake up back home in North Wales with Snowdonia in the background. Have a coffee and muffin somewhere down the valley watching the world go by. Head down to St Ives for a sport of SUPing and a fish 'n' chip lunch on the beach before heading to Mimizan for some afternoon cocktails at A Noste. Dinner overlooking Darling Harbour, Sydney & then end the night having a party in Queenstown, NZ (you said time and money was no object!)
 
6
Which song would definitely get you up on the dance floor?

Massive fan of Sigala ‘Came Here for Love’ They kept playing it on Love Island…. and its sooooooo… catchy.

7
Name three things you would take on a desert island

Zac Efron, Rum Punch & a Lilo – you did ask! I wouldn’t mind spending the last of my days lying on a lilo with Zac Efron feeding me rum!!!

The benefits of a school residential trip for teachers and group leaders >

Teachers are amazing! However, with increasing pressures on workload and such a busy job, why take the extra time to organise a school trip? Well, because believe it or not there are many benefits for you, as well as the students. 

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
