Mark Waters

Mark is a graduate of Loughborough University and a Physical Education teacher with over 20 years experience working with primary school children. In the past Mark has competed in athletics to an international level.

Since 2014 around busy professional careers Paul and Mark have been visiting Primary Schools and find visits inspire children to be more active, especially those who otherwise may not always enjoy Physical Education. A WOW day is a great way to engage children to talk about topics outlined in the PSHE curriculum.

Schools have used visits to launch a club or boost existing clubs and the feedback from WOW DAYS has been overwhelmingly positive with comments such as “the best day of our lives” and “a very inspirational day”.
