Theunis Pieters

Head of Hawkes Boarding

What you are studying?

PhD – Sport and Exercise Science

What are your interests in life? 

Helping aspiring young athletes to reach the highest levels possible in their chosen sport by being the best strength and conditioning coach to them that I can be. I love working with students that are motivated and want to be the best version of themselves in their chosen sport. Personally, I love playing sports and am still involved in competitive track running and I play rugby for Launceston’s Premier rugby team, The Tigers.

Why do you like working at Grammar Boarding?

I love the boarding community at Grammar as it has provided me with a sense of belonging and has been my family away from family for the last 3 and half years that I have been at Grammar.
