I have been involved with Clevedon School since 2002, when the eldest of my three children started as a New Entrant.
My family and I live on a farm in the area and love the unique Clevedon countryside, community and lifestyle.
I was delighted to join the school team in 2011 as a Teacher Aide. It is a pleasure to be involved with the children and to help support them with their education.
Every great organisation needs a numbers person. I count myself beyond lucky to have landed my dream job when I was taken on board in January 2018 to keep track of Clevedon School’s numbers.
I am responsible for all things financial and for ensuring they're as solid as can be. That includes everything from the day-to-day dollars and cents of financial transactions to setting and ensuring we stay within a budget somewhat constrained by the operations grant allocated by the Ministry of Education.
I love, love, love the enthusiasm, engagement and just overall friendliness of the whole team at Clevedon School. You can see and feel the positive impact the working relationships have on the motivation of our team and on our Clevedon Kids.
On a personal note, Rarotonga (or any Pacific Island) rates as my happy place. I can also, way too sporadically, be found in my gardens - with results that can best be described as “unfortunate”.
I have lived in Clevedon for most of my life, attending Clevedon School myself. I have 3 boys who also attended Clevedon School from 2002 when my eldest first started as a new entrant and then twin boys who started in 2005, who have now all gone on to College.
I have worked in the school office for over 3 years and have enjoyed meeting all the new families and feel fortunate that I can be part of this very busy bubbly school.
Kia Ora, Ko Huruiki toku Maunga, Ko Whakapara toku Marae, Ko Ngapuhi toku Iwi.
I am an ex student of this wonderful Kura and have lived in and around the area most of my life. I feel very lucky for the chance to work here and give a little back. I have come from a variety of busy corporate roles and am very excited for the change of pace and achieving some life balance. I have a passion for Te Reo and Waiata and have almost completed my second year of learning. I love spending time with my family, cooking the favorites and sitting down to eat together is a big thing our whare. Kap and I have three children and have just been blessed with our first grandchild.
