Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

Staff Appointments

I am pleased to announce that we have two new members of staff joining us on Monday 10 June.  Gail Christie will be joining Puriri Team as the Team Leader and Teacher of Rm 28, replacing Kate Ginders, who left at the end of Term 1.  Gail is an experienced practitioner and leader from St Mary’s School in Ellerslie. In addition to Gail, we also have Steven Mills joining us from Christchurch.  Steven will be taking over from Chloe Grimmer Room 25, who will be leaving us to have her first baby at the end of next week.  We know the community would like to wish Chloe and Carlos all the best with this exciting adventure.  I would like to also extend a warm welcome on behalf of our school community to Gail and Steven (who will be growing our male contingent on staff).

Staff Resignation

I also unfortunately have to inform the community of the upcoming departure of one of our long serving members of staff- Cynthia Peat.  Over the past 25 years, Cynthia has been a class teacher, before moving from a fulltime class to lead the ESOL programme, until part way through last year, when she handed over this responsibility to Kelsi Robertson.  After stepping back a little last year, Cynthia has now decided to leave her part time position in order to be able to maximise her time with her husband Ken and their family.  Cynthia is a very humble and quiet person, who will be very much missed by the staff, students and families she has worked with over the years. I would like to thank her for her outstanding and dedicated service to CPDS, as well as wishing her the very best for the future.


非常遗憾的是我将要通知大家,一直以来为我们长期服务的员工之一 Cynthia Peat 即将离职。 在过去的25年里,从她开始领导 ESOL 课程之前,Cynthia 是一名全职的班主任,直到去年她开始担任兼职工作,之后她亦将这一重大责任和职务交给了 Kelsi Robertson。 过去一年,Cynthia 担任兼职的工作,然而现在她决定离开她的兼职职位,以便能够与她的丈夫和家人有多一点的时间相处。 Cynthia 是一个非常谦虚和温和的人,多年来与她一起工作的教职人员,学生和家庭将会非常怀念她。 我要感谢她为 CPDS 所做出的努力和贡献,并祝福她未来一切顺利。

Kind regards
