Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

Just a little about me as a person.


I have been married to Chris (who is my rock) for nearly 32 years and we have two boys Robert 30 and Stephen 28, who we are very proud of.

Chris and I love travelling and we are currently working through a number of countries still on our bucket list. In the weekends, we enjoy spending time with family, sailing with friends and I must also admit I like to channel my creative side by card making, scrapbooking and needlework which keeps me very busy while also allowing me to relax. I have been principal at CPDS since 2010, and I can honestly say I still thoroughly enjoy my job. I feel privileged to be able to work here with your wonderful children, along with my great leadership team and the quality staff we have in our school. Like them I am always striving to be better than before and welcome any feedback to assist in this. I remain committed to ensuring the school culture nurtures our values and dispositions, as well as delivering the best learning opportunities we can for your children.

Please stop and chat to me whenever you see me out and about the school, or if you prefer just drop-in to my office.
