Meet the PE & Sport Teachers
Mr. Ness – Head of PE & Sport
My name is Mr. Ness, I have been at Wellington since 1995. When I first started at Wellington there were 9 boys in green blazers and the rest of the pupils were all girls they used to wear grey blazers, and ill always remember on my first assembly there were a sea of blond hair and grey blazers and 9 terrified boys, in primary 7 and first year sitting in assembly, so its amazing seeing what it has become.
I teach PE throughout the day and I really enjoy it, after school I teach rugby, football, table tennis, as well as other activities during lunch times.
I think the fact that Wellington is a small school makes it special as it means you get to know all the pupils from nursery all the way through to senior 6, and you get to know all about the individuals, their personalities, their interests. I also like the fact we are all close and we are a family, its very rewarding, the pupils are excellent, behavior is excellent so we get through a lot of work.
I decided to become a PE teacher because I enjoy sport, I enjoy working with and teaching pupils. I enjoy the impact it has on them, I see them grow, develop, and mature, and seeing those who I have taught go on to have a career in sports, such as rugby go on to play in clubs and even the national team, is extremely gratifying.
If id give advice to any pupil at Wellington it would be to take part in all the activities, all the events the school puts on, as that way you’ll be rewarded with all these experiences, which I think will enhance your life.
