Gavin Hastings, PE Specialist
My name is Gavin Hastings. The students might know me as Mr. G. I grew up in the beautiful city of
Victoria, BC. I went through the public system from K-12. Following graduation, I went on to work at a
Christian Camp in New Zealand for 3 years. When I came back to Canada, I attended Camosun College
and completed my Diploma in Exercise and Wellness. Shortly after, I realized I want to work with youth,
and share the knowledge I had learned in my Exercise and Wellness program, so I decided to become a
teacher. In 2019, I received my Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria. I have been a
Teacher on Call (TOC) for the last three years and have had the privilege to teach in a variety of different
schools and grades.
While teaching on call, I have had multiple opportunities to teach Physical Education. I find that this is an
amazing subject for children to learn valuable life skills and have a good time while learning.
PE/coaching and sport has always been a big part of my life. Since I was young, I have been fortunate to
be able to play multiple sports, starting with water polo, swimming, and eventually leading me into
sports like soccer and volleyball. I have also coached multiple middle and high school teams from track
and field to rugby. I hope to bring some awesome spirit to Delta Christian and its sports program.
Finally I want to leave you with my educational quote, “I hope to impact students’ life so that they leave
the gym with lifelong skills and abilities”
