Sports Coordinator

Mr Paul Stokes

Hi Sacred Heart Community

My name is Paul Stokes and I am a Sport Coordinator at SHGC. I am married and have twin boys. I am a primary trained teacher and have taught full time and part time here and overseas for approximately 12 years. I have also been a Recreation Coordinator for NZCCS Waikato (now CCS Disability Action Waikato) and a Senior Firefighter here in Hamilton.

I have enjoyed many sports during my time playing including: football, rugby, softball, athletics, kickboxing and american football. I have since coached junior football to Waikato representative level, coordinated the football programme in a local primary school and coached men’s football. I believe sport is important for the development of many life lessons e.g. persistence, commitment, teamwork, trust, accountability and fun. I am therefore passionate about supporting the students at Sacred Heart to be involved in sport and feel privileged to have the opportunity to do this.

I look forward to meeting you and supporting you in being the best you that you can be.
