Kia ora, I have been the Principal’s PA and Office Manager since 2008 supporting the school in all facets of school administration. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be supporting Janine, Dawn and Shanthan, and working alongside fellow ‘Angels’, Leigh, Belinda and Wendy, 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 enjoy my roll overseeing all 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 three children; Andy, Charlie and Ashley who is currently working in Canada. We are a tight family unit, enjoy eating great food together, camping, fishing and Rugby League.
