Yvonne O’Hara

Teacher of PE & Teaching and Learning Coach

My name is Miss O’Hara, and I am a PE teacher at GEMS Metropole School.


I have lived in Dubai and worked within GEMS for seven 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 in 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 dedicated time to create a dynamic and motivating environment in which all students are actively engaged in the learning process.


As a keen sportswoman, with a special interest in Netball, I have a clear passion for sport and education. I believe PE can positively impact every aspect of a student's life. PE encourages students to challenge themselves in a safe and inclusive environment, generating high performance and the opportunity for students to realise their own potential.


I am excited to continue sharing my experience and enthusiasm for sport with the students at GEMS Metropole School and the Mustangs squads, promoting lifelong participation in physical activity.
