PSHE Education Teacher, CCA Coordinator
Lingesh is from Singapore. He studied at Edith Cowan University, Perth and graduated with a BSc in Exercise and Sports Science. He completed his teacher training from National Institute of Education. He is a certified Asian Football Confederation "C" Licence Coach (AFC), Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (ASCA Level 1) and has an MOE Service Excellence Award 2019 (Silver).
Lingesh was inspired to become a teacher because of his respect and awe for teachers. He believes that teaching and learning are two-way. Teachers not only teach but also learn from students, such as when a child asks a novel question or completes the lesson in a unique way. These form learning moments for the teacher, which can be used in the future.
At OWIS, he is looking forward to meeting with the students to share his knowledge of PE through fun and engaging ways. He also looks forward to interacting with the friendly staff at OWIS.
In his free time, Lingesh loves playing with his son. In addition, he enjoys exercising and the outdoors. He regularly goes for runs and cycling. He also does CrossFit workouts and plays futsal to keep fit and healthy.
