Kia ora whanau, my name is Lisa Rolle and I began teaching at CPDS over 9 years ago. Teaching Year 1 and 2 students in a job-share situation with Andy Butler was a fantastic way to spend 7 of those years. In 2016 I embarked on a new career path and have had the opportunity to encourage language learning in the school. I have helped to promote Te Reo throughout the school and have been active in events such as Matariki and Marae visits. I have also worked closely with Wendy Wang to establish a school-wide Mandarin Language Programme. As part of my personal development, I am learning Mandarin and have started teaching Year 2 Mandarin lessons. Celebrating cultures and language is a passion of mine. I also work with students of all levels who need to reignite their love for the English language.
