  • Ms Michel Sealy

    Ms Michel Sealy

    Deputy General Manager

    Nationality/years in Hong Kong and/or Asia: British, 20 years

    What do you love about your job?
    I love the fact I get to visit a different school each day to meet with the supervisors and teachers. Visiting each of our 10 schools means I am still able to spend time with the children, who are always so welcoming. One little girl once gave me a big hug when I entered her class and told me she liked my shoes!

    What do you enjoy most about working at Woodland?
    The fact that there is a great deal of flexibility, understanding and care shown towards our team members. Although we have grown from five schools to 10 since I joined the group, everyone from the cleaning staff on up is valued and known personally to management. Woodland has a fantastic culture of recognizing hard work and rewards efforts with little gestures such as cupcakes, lunches, flowers on Teachers’ Day, team-bonding nights out every term, and an annual staff party.

    What do you love about your job?
    I love the variety, and getting to know all the children and their parents. It’s great to be able to give children the opportunity to develop their fitness.

    What do you like to do when you are not teaching?
    I train for triathlons and I completed my first half ironman last year in Cebu.

    I enjoy what the fitness industry has to offer and since being in Hong Kong I have qualified as a children’s fitness instructor. I am also a children’s fitness trainer for fitness instructors and usually conduct a course once a year in China.
