Lisa Whiteman - Sports Development Officer
As a speciaist in Dance & Performing arts, I believe that every young person should have the opportunity to express their own creativity and develop a passion for the arts. Performing Arts allows children to communicate their thoughts in a way that's universally understood. Allowing the shy to be bold and the bold to harness their full potential. Watching that seed grow and flourish is why I became a teacher.
