Community Connector - Healthy Active Learning Appointments
COMMUNITY CONNECTORS – HEALTHY ACTIVE LEARNING
CLM Community Sport have the pleasure to share the latest appointments to our Healthy Active Learning Team. After a lengthy recruitment process, we are pleased to welcome Sione and Louisa in their new roles to the CLM Community Sport whanau.
INTRODUCING: SIONE SIONE - Community Connector #1
Sione has been appointed into one of the two roles available. He is transitioning from a Community Sport Advisor role with CLM Community Sport, having worked closely with VectorWero supporting them with community access to the South Auckland Drowning Prevention Programme which has seen over 2,000 people participate.
“I see this role as a continuation of work I am doing in College with continued growth of understanding of what life as a teacher could have possibly been like. I did think earlier in my life of studying to be a teacher which things in life change that thought into a teaching pathway. Other than coaching in schools this is most likely going to be the next best thing without having to return to study, but use my skill with engaging and connection in community to merge this in with their local schools and have an increase in healthy active families and community.
“I can engage with people in the community, provide leadership, advice, offer a cultural perspective, advocacy, networks and resources for people seeking support. I am committed to this career path by being prepared to learn new skills and taking on board challenges with positivity and determination, seeking opportunities for personal growth.”
Sione transitioned into the role effective Monday 29th March.
INTRODUCING: LOUISA TUILOTOLAVA (LULU) – Community Connector #2
Lulu is a South Auckland resident, who currently coaches hockey at St Cuthberts, works as a Sports Coach for Counties Manukau Sport, and a member of the NZ Black Sticks Womens Squad.
“The main reason that motivated me to apply for the role is that I am very passionate about healthy living, giving back to the community and sports. These three important factors have helped me transform into the person I am today. During my time with the Black Sticks Women’s squad, it was then when I become significantly aware on how important it was giving back to the community as well as the sport and this was also portrayed in living and practising a healthy lifestyle. I believe that my values and experiences can contribute to this role and believe this position can offer and instil many important learnings”
Lulu joins the CLM Community Sport team on Monday 12th April.
