INA PEEK – Owner of Active Kids
Growing up I was always referred to as a water baby and later surfer girl. My love for swimming and water sports has never died.
At the suggestion of a friend I did my Life Saving and swimming instructor courses through S. A LIFE SAVING AND SWIM S. A. and in 1994 opened a successful swim school in Jhb where I used to stay. I taught for a number of years before going back into the corporate world.
After moving to KZN and falling on tough times, I decided to take to the pool and teach again. I have realized I have a gift working with kiddies and have opened up a mini sports academy named ” Active Kids”. I teach swimming in the summer months and in winter we do a basic introduction to sports and a mini bootcamp.
I see learning to swim as a life skill and every child must have the chance to learn to swim. Sport after all teaches children to never give up and to encourage those weaker than themselves. It’s about being part of a team, learning from one another and building self esteem which I feel is so important in today’s world. That’s why the ACTIVE KIDS motto is
In CHRIST we live, move and have our being!!!
