Wairakei Primary School is a special place for me.
I have been at this school for 18 years previously as Assistant Principal for 17 years and this year my role as Team Leader.
I have lived in this community for over 30 years on a farm with my husband John. It has been an interesting journey for me as I have had the privilege of seeing children start at Wairakei and complete their 6 years with us before they move on many times. I have been lucky to teach many different siblings in established families in the district over the years.
I enjoy being part of the community and still enjoy coming to work each day.
