Sue Oppert - Manager (Life Care for Schools)
Growing up I was lucky to be part of a loving, supportive family that allowed me to do what I enjoyed most – play sport! It was through that love of play that I learnt many valuable things. Things like:
- The importance of the ‘team’ – working together to achieve common goals.
- Hard work and persistence pay off and good communication is key.
- Being physically fit improves health and self-esteem. To quote Winnie the Pooh, “A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.”
- Having fun, laughter and friendship makes everything so much better.
With a teacher mother, it was no surprise that I ended up in education. Besides, I love learning…knowledge empowers people and gives them choices. Teaching Physical Education and Health was a logical fit and allowed me to combine what I loved. My love of learning later saw me complete a Diploma in Career Guidance.
My family has always been my highest priority – and I am lucky enough to have friends that are like family. My family and friends are like the icing on a cake: they make the whole thing that much better, they are sweet, sometimes sticky, but are colourful and make me smile.
Coming to Life Care Consultants was a natural transition. I believe in what we do and I know we do it really well. I believe in our company core values: “Attitude is everything – positive, fun and passionate.” And I believe it is my role, as part of that team, to practise and do my job to the best of my ability so the desired outcomes are achieved – just like in any sport.
