Principal's Profile

Kia ora whanau,

I am still excited after six years in the job, to call myself principal of Ohinewai School. 

I realise what a privilege it is to work with, not just our dedicated staff and talented students but the warm and caring greater community as well. 

I place an emphasis on building strong, authentic relationships which helps engender trust and grows collaboration.


I bring into our unique rural environment, my own overseas experiences of having lived, studied and worked in five different countries. 

I do take immense pleasure in applying this global lens to our local context.

I look forward to sharing some of our ideas, actions and outcomes with you.
