Yvonne O'Hara

Head of Physical Education

My name is Yvonne O’Hara and I am Head of PE at GEMS Metropole School. I have lived in Dubai and worked within GEMS for four years. During this time, I have gained experience as Head of PE within the GEMS network as a founding member of staff at a National school in Dubai, before joining the Metropole community in 2019.

After graduating from St. Mary’s University, London with first class honours in Secondary Physical Education, I spent three very rewarding years teaching in a large comprehensive school in Harrow. It was here that I developed my student-approach to teaching and adopted a number of different roles within the PE department.

As a keen sportswoman, with a special interest in Netball, I have a clear passion for sport and education. I believe PE has the ability to positively impact every aspect of a student's life. PE encourages students to challenge themselves in a safe and inclusive environment while developing essential transferable skills.

I am excited to share my experience and enthusiasm for sport with the students of GEMS Metropole School and promote lifelong participation in physical activity.
