General Information

Kia ora koutou e te whānau.

Ko Dylan van Deventer tōku ingoa - ‘though the kids tend to call me Mr. V or Mr. Vundy. I am a third-year teacher and I‘ve had the privilege of beginning my career right here at TAPS.

Although I was born on the east coast of South Africa, I’ve lived in the heart of the King Country since I was 10, experiencing and growing to love rural Aotearoa first hand.

I have a passion for all things musical, having graduated with a Bachelor of Contemporary Music way back in 2012, and I enjoy sharing that passion with the tauira in my class. I also enjoy exploring mathematics, culture/languages, and the arts.

I’m looking forward to having a great 2021, and rising to any challenges the year may bring with the staff and wonderful students at TAPS.
