Kia ora tatou,
I am an ex-pupil of WHHS along with my husband Kurt and son Bailey, and my daughter Paige is currently in year 11.
I have been employed at Sport Bay of Plenty for over 11 years in a number of roles including administration, health, recreation and school sport. I currently work in the Primary and Intermediate school sport space facilitating a calendar of 40+ sporting events for Rotorua school children. I am passionate about children being physically active whether it’s through organised sport or informal activities as I believe there are not only health benefits but essential life skills are learned such as teamwork, communication, leadership and co-operation.
My husband and I have managed the local volleyball club for nearly 10 years now and I have been on the Volleyball Bay of Plenty board for over 7 years, currently as the board chair.
I am passionate about supporting all of our children have equal opportunities, positive experiences and a quality education, be that academically, culturally, in sports or any other area that will help them grow and develop into amazing adults who have something to contribute to the community.
I am very pleased to have been selected as a parent representative on the BOT and I welcome hearing from you.
