General Information

Kia ora koutou katoa

I grew up in Durban, South Africa and started my teaching career there. My wife and I immigrated to New Zealand in 2007. We have two active children, a son aged 6 and a daughter aged 10. We spend our free time exploring new places and enjoying the outdoors, either riding our mountain bikes or tramping. I have been teaching for over 20 years in a range of different schools, for the last 12 years in New Zealand.

My responsibility as the Deputy Principal is to ensure that your children continue to receive a quality education within a safe, respectful and supportive environment where we prepare our students for the future. As a parent, I understand the importance we place on our children's learning. As a teacher/leader, I welcome your support in helping create the best possible outcomes for your children. The opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of the students, staff, caregivers and the wider community excites me.

Ngā mihi nui
