Tena koutou katoa, 

I am thrilled to be one of the Deputy Principals of our wonderful school!

Originally from London, England, over the last 19 years I have lived in Hamilton, Christchurch, and Auckland along with my two sons, Harrison and Gabriel. Harrison is about to turn 21. He attended Massey University in Wellington, where he studied music and is now a full time musician and Gabe is 17 and works in retail.

I have worked in various primary and intermediate schools where my leadership roles have included Digital Technologies and Collaborative Practice.

I believe that students learn best when they are excited, passionate, and inspired, and know that these attributes are best encouraged through strong connections, positive relationships, and ownership around goals and aspirations. 

Ensuring our students are in an inclusive and nurturing environment will allow them to be the best that they can be, striving for excellence and becoming resilient, capable, and independent individuals. 

As our school grows, I look forward to connecting with the wider community and pursuing these goals together.

Kia ora koutou katoa,

I am immensely proud to be one of the Deputy Principals at Ahutoetoe School. Building and contributing to this growing community is something that I take great pride in. I was a classroom teacher for over 10 years and taught in both primary and intermediate schools where I had a variety of leadership roles such as Sports Coordinator, Dean, and Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCO). I have a Master’s Degree in Education and have developed skills to ensure that schools both support and challenge all learners to enjoy and make the most of their opportunities.

I was born and raised in London before making the move to New Zealand with my wife, Laura, in 2019. Once we settled down, we added our daughter, Olivia, and our son, Felix, to the family and feel very lucky to have each other.

The best schools invest in students as lifelong learners and believe that they are capable of incredible achievements when they find a passion for learning. As part of the Senior Leadership Team, I aim to support all learners to be inspired to learn, build connections with their friends and teachers, and be nurtured to grow and achieve their goals. I believe in the power of developing and building resilience in each other and ourselves by seeking out and growing from challenges. Finding a passion to push ourselves to new heights and grow others is so important; a school setting is the perfect place to begin this journey and develop skills and a mindset we can apply to any and all challenges we face. 

Ahutoetoe School is a special place full of opportunities and potential. I look forward to building the future of this community together with you all.
