Kia ora, I have been the Principal’s PA for almost nine years supporting the school in all facets of school administration. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be supporting Janine, Alicia and Dawn and working alongside fellow ‘angels’, Leigh and Belinda, and our amazing group of passionate education practitioners. My role is varied and interesting with no two days ever the same and certainly never a dull moment. I am responsible for our sick bay and enrolments – having now enrolled every child in our school. I have loved getting to know many of your children, some unfortunately being through injuries and sicknesses, but please be assured that your children are cared for as if they are my own. I spent 10 years as a secretary working in the corporate world, before having a family and being dedicated to Playcentre for a further 9 years where I was very involved in the education programme alongside Jan Quensell who thankfully shoulder tapped me to come to CPDS. My husband, Grant and I have 3 children, Andy (21), Charlie (18) and Ashley (24) who is currently working in Canada. We are a tight family unit, Rugby League lovers, and of course, lately loved supporting Team NZ.
