Fakaalofa lahi atu and Talofa Lava. Proud to have been born, bred and raised in Grey Lynn. I started primer one here in 1974 and finished standard four in 1980. My own three children were students here from 1996 – 2006. I began teaching here in 2009 and have been here since. I love my job some days, but I REALLY love my job most days. Monu, Monu, Monu Tagaloa.

“Hapaitia te ara tika pumau ai te rangatirangatanga mo nga uri whakatipu“
Local resident, artist and mother of 2 ex pupils from both Te Uru Karaka and Te Awahou. I am passionate about Matauranga Māori and Te Reo Māori and love being a part of the growth and development of all our tamariki here at Newton Central.
Parent of two students who have both gone through Te Uru Karaka. I enjoy working with students who are enthusiastic to learn alongside wonderful, supportive staff.
