General Information

Currently our youngest son Nelson attends Waikanae School whilst his two elder brothers Finn and Samuel spent happy primary school years here.
Our family is very proud of Waikanae School with its awesome culture and strong values helping to foster a deep sense of family connection and belonging.

Currently working in the top job of full-time Mum, my background has been predominantly in horticulture. I really enjoy my involvement as a parent representative on the Board of Trustees and also in day to day school life.

Our board brings together a group of people with diverse skills to benefit our school community. I embrace working as part of this enthusiastic team, helping to ensure that our children receive a solid foundation of learning in a positive and healthy environment.
