I have had many varied jobs over the years but I have now found my niche. I have been involved with Wairakei Primary School since 1994, firstly as a parent and then as a member of staff.  My first position was working as a Teacher Aide, then in 2010 became the Librarian. I work predominantly in the Library but also support students and colleagues in the classroom.   

My husband, Paul, and I have lived in Wairakei Village since 1988. Paul works for Contact Energy as one of the longest serving staff members. Our girls, Renae and Morgan, were both students at Wairakei Primary School, actually so was Paul for a short time, plus one of our granddaughters.

Wairakei Primary School is the most incredible school. We as a staff support each other in any way we can and are here for the betterment of our students ensuring they remember their primary years as positive and enjoyable. Our children’s primary school days are often the ones where memories are made and they carry those memories with them forever.  

You are always welcome to call into the Library whenever you are in the school or get in touch if you have any queries.
