Tēnā koutou katoa

Tēnā koutou, Welcome to Manaia School.

It has been a privilege to be part of the Manaia School whānau for over 15 years. My relationship with our school started as a parent. I then became a Teacher Aide, Teacher, Assistant Principal and I am now so fortunate to bring these many lenses into my role as the Principal of our amazing school.

I was born in Taranaki and have called Manaia home for nearly 30 years. It is now very much the place I call home. I now have four generations of my whanau living in our beautiful town. My children attended Manaia School and my moko will be the next generation to start. I therefore naturally have a strong investment in our future success as a school.
