My name is Roslyn McConnell and I am thoroughly looking forward to joining the BSG community. I have over 20 years’ experience teaching Physical Education and have worked in the UK, Thailand and most recently Qatar. Sport and physical activity are vitally important to help maintain our health; increase our self-confidence; improve our mental well-being and ultimately, it’s great fun to be active. Having the opportunity to join a vibrant school that offers such a wide range of opportunities was one that I couldn’t pass and I can’t wait to get fully immersed in the sporting life of the school.
I join BSG with my husband Paul, who has been appointed as the new Head of Secondary and with our two daughters currently studying Primary Teaching and Child Nursing at Brighton University, we have now found ourselves with time to explore and enjoy China. Outside of school, running, reading and trying to increase my understanding of Mandarin will be my focus for this year.
