Kia Ora. I’m Erin Hooper, and I have been at CPDS for almost 8 years now. During that time I have been a Team Leader of Year 5, Year 6 and now as a combination of both. During this time I have been involved in many of the fabulous opportunities offered in the senior school: Camps, Productions, Flag Day and my personal favourite – Year 5 Dance. Who can forget our glow in the dark extravaganza of a couple of years ago! For the past 3 years I’ve been working alongside Chris Porteous in the shared classroom that is Room 28. This has been a wonderful experience and, as many of you will know, I am a complete convert to this type of learning environment because of the benefits it provides for students and teachers.
