Tori Purcell


Parent Representative



General Information

My name is Tori Purcell, I have 4 children currently enrolled at Waikanae School in years 8, 6, 4 and 2. Having been a part of the Waikanae School whanau since 2013 I have come to appreciate the effort the staff go to such lengths to encourage and enhance not only the children but also the families and I would like to help move this amazing school into the future as a parent representative on the board.

I am currently enjoying work as a casual teacher aide here at school while also being co-coordinator for our netballers and most recently coordinator for our touch rugby players. I thoroughly love being able to give back to the school.

Being on the Board of Trustees I am grateful for the opportunity to ensure that our school keeps going from strength to strength in educating our children, preparing them for what is to come, keeping the values and expectations learnt with them wherever they may go.
