Active Moves Team
Active Moves is delivered by our qualified teachers under the direction of our AEP, who are trained to meet the needs of teaching and supporting young adults with a disability. We support our teachers with manuals, visual aids, in pool equipment and professional development to ensure they are equipped and trained to provide the optimum service.
Active Moves Program Manager
Many young adults with a disability in the Sutherland Shire will have met Carla as she has been teaching with Rainbow Club for 14 years. Now she is turning her attention to supporting young adults in providing opportunities and activities which form part of a health and wellness program specifically tailored to a participant and their families. Trained in the Yogalates ™ method – 500-hr Yoga and Pilates certification, combined with her extensive experience in teaching aquatic programs, Carla is passionate about providing a holistic aqua program to enable young adults with a disability to extend their abilities and achieve their goals as she assists with their journey into adulthood.
Serina began teaching swimming in 1996 and joined Rainbow Club in 2006. Her love of teaching people how to swim and working with people with disabilities, sparked her interest in becoming a classroom teacher and she recently completed a Bachelor of Special Education Primary and Bachelor of Disability Studies. Serina is passionate about the work she does and prides herself on her ability to build strong relationships with the children and adults she teaches. She has a positive, can-do attitude and makes the participants feel valued regardless of their disability or presenting behaviours. Watching the people she works with achieve their goals, be them big or small, really makes her day. Serina describes her work with Rainbow Club and now Active Moves as her “love job”.
